zak123_zak123
When I open my 6 disk drives C,D,f,h,g & h The error is Windows cannot find 'copy.exe'. I can not open the drives normally by double clicking I need to open by right click and by selecting explore, I tried to install some anti-virus scanned my drives, I removed some trojan virous which I think are the one who causes the error but when I finished the scan and tried to open my drives the errors is still the same

    This is the work of a trojan/virus.

    Do this:

    First unhide system files/hidden files.
    * Click Start.
    * Open My Computer.
    * Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
    * Select the View Tab.
    * Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
    * Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
    * Click Yes to confirm.
    * Click OK.

    This will expose copy.exe along with host.exe and/or other baddies. Next do a complete system scan with a REPUTABLE virus scanner, for example Mcafee. Make sure to update the virus definition files first.

    Hmm, you tried to install 'some antivirus'?? This was most likely some rogue antivirus software that infects you then try to make you to buy their product to remove the infection. Or the result of some 'pirated' antivirus.

    If you do not have a reputable up to date viruscanner, scan your pc via online using one of the many free online resources.
    Try my top favorite free online scan:

    Scan complete pc.

    Also before doing any of this. Temporarily shut of system restore, and boot into safemode with networking. If you're having problems attempting in safemode, at least shut off system restore and reboot in normal state and proceed.

    Do the following if still having problems.

    Click start, run, type in regedit and hit enter. Find this key:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MountPoints2\

    Look through the clsids that have subkeys (eg. {6f745f47-6814-11db-940b-00138f7c0a44} ) and check for a Shell\AutoRun\command subkey. Delete that command subkey.

    Best of luck! Repost your success please.

    Boot with UBCD and scan for viruses and malware with this. It'll remove the ones that you can't get rid of with the system booted from the local HDD.
