Hi saf79,

This is usually caused by an infected autorun.inf file. Enable hidden folders and then delete the file.
Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide

Alternatively, hit Win+R to bring up the Run command and copy all of the following code in (this should delete the file from your drive):
attrib -H -S l:\autorun.inf | del l:\autorun.inf

Afterwards, run CCleaner and then restart.
CCleaner - Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download
CCleaner - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Downloads

Hope this helps,
