How to access a virus-ravaged disk?

It is common to meet the circumstance that we couldn't enter disk by double-click from My Computer but from explorer. Generally, it is because of virus attack and user can solve this problem with following steps:

1. Delete autorun.inf file

Enter "My Computer" and click "Tool -> Folder Option -> View" in sequence, then check "Show hidden files and folders" and click "OK". Afterwards, open every partition with "Explorer" and delete, if any, autorun.inf. Lastly, restart computer.

2. Reset "Open With"

Enter "My Computer" and click "Tool -> Folder Option -> View" in sequence, then find and check "Driver" and click "Advance". "Edit File Type" would emerge, now click "Create New" and enter "Open". Then enter "explorer.exe" in "applications to execute operation" and click "OK" to back to "Edit file type", check "open" and click "make default", then restart computer.

3. Modify registry

Open registry editor and locate "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell", delete all key assignments and save then quit registry editor.
