PENDRIVE Hard Drive?

I just formated my computer and the next day I check my hard drives and I get a PENDRIVE folder? Any ideas to fix it? Only thing i can think of that I might of caused it was, trying to remove dual boot from xp on my seprate hard drive and I might of removed something that wasnt suppose to be removed.

Hello zurk12.



What happens if you right click F: and select "Open" are there files to view?

Well I deleted some text, I don't recall what it said from the autoconfig.inf from the system startup. But one of my friends said I might have a trojan in my xp, but if I did had it why until now to show up as pendrive?

The best thing for you to do is download and install the free version of MBAM from the link below after that do a full / complete scan with Malwarebytes to see if it finds any malware and post back with the results.
