If your Floppy Drive light is glowing for every 2 to 3 seconds without a Floppy in it, then do like this

Today so many viruses, worms, trojans and potentially unwanted programs are attacking our PC. Almost all Antivirus software developing companies are offering their free Evaluation Versions or free Trial Versions. We can try those softwares for one month freely. All of them are working very good. We can use different combinations of antivirus softwares for removing viruses, worms, trojans and potentially unwanted programs. If you are using one antivirus software for protection and want to try another antivirus software then first you have to uninstall the first antivirus software from your PC. Then you can try the second one. In some cases you can try the second one by just inactivate the first antivirus software.

Recently My PC was infected by some Viruses. Without any floppy in my floppy drive, my floppy drive light is glowing for every 2 to 3 seconds. Also system performance becomes slow. The virus is trying to access the floppy drive for every 2 or 3 seconds. So the system becomes very slow. For removing this and other viruses I have used two antivirus softwares. First I used Avira AntiVir PersonalEdition Classic(Free for home PC). But when Avira scanning the virus affected file then my system is freezing. So First I scanned my PC with BitDefender Antivirus Plus v10(Evaluation Version). It worked O.K and deleted some viruses. But still my floppy drive light is glowing for every 2 to 3 seconds and system performance is slow as before. Now I scanned my PC using Avira AntiVir PersonalEdition Classic. This time Avira works very well. It won't freeze my system. I deleted all Virus affected files with Avira AntiVir PersonalEdition Classic. Now My floppy drive light is not glowing unnesasserily. Also my system performance is very fast now. Also all my programs are working perfectly except the problem below.

As I deleted all virus affected files, now my drives C,D,E,F are not opening. When I double click any one of the drives then it is giving error message “Cannot find copy.exe” and the drives are not opening at all. But I can open any drive by right clicking it and then select open. Only I can not open drives by doubleclicking. Anyone can rectify this problem by doing like below.

Open My Computer. Select Folder Options from Tools menu, then click the View tab. Now tick Show hidden files and folders. In the same View tab window remove the tick mark at Hide protected Operating system files then a warning message will come. Just click Yes. Now click Apply then click OK. Now right click C drive then open it. You will observe Desktop.ini file. Just delete it. Similarly delete Desktop.ini file in D,E,F drives. Now restart the system. Now you can open any drive by doubleclicking it.

Also remember one more thing. With the help of this Antivirus softwares we are deleting virus affected files. So after deleting Virus affected files some programs may not work. For example Yahoo messenger may not work, Ms Word may not work etc. You have to reinstall them again. All this depends on attacked Viruses. Some times Add or Remove Programs(this is in control panel) may not work. Also Recent viruses are attacking game files,mostly game exe files. So after using the latest antivirus softwares you have to delete virus affected game exe files. For the game to work you have to reinstall the game or to copy the same game exe file from one of your friends system. Also do not use cracked game files. Cracked files may contain Viruses. Some times you have to reinstall the entire Operating System by formatting the harddisk. All this depends on Attacked Viruses and the extent of damage caused by them.
