Icon of hard drive in My Computer has changed (Vista HP)

Posted: 01-19-2009, 09:42 PM
I suddenly noticed that icon of My Book WD external drive has changed.
Also in " Windows Help and Support" instead of icon there are only shown
white squares with a red cross ( place holders). How can I fix this
problem?

(I'm running Vista Home Premium 64 bit)

Thanks IA -

Hi,

See if there is an autorun.inf file on the root of the hard drive (C:\). If
so, delete it.
