Marianna, Is there a new virus or malware floating around that's causing people to lose their drive associations (C:, D:, etc.)? I'm seeing quite a few posts on various forums where people can't double click their drives to open them. They're getting the "Open With" option instead. Some have been able to right click the drive and choose Open. Any info would be appreciated.

the Flashdrive infections??

they are NOT really "new".

Like: W32/RJump.worm http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_139985.htm

Infection occurs when a removable storage device or a mapped drive hosting a copy of W32/Rjump.worm is accessed and the user agrees to the auto run prompt for execution of the worm.

As the virus has been removed - the Mountpoints2 subkey stays.

There is a tool available - pls. click on my name - to send me an e-mail - so I can send it to you.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
