Try
1. Open Start>>Run and type cmd and press enter. This will open a command prompt window. On this command prompt window type the following steps.

2. type cd\

3. type attrib -r -h -s autorun.inf

4. type del autorun.inf

5. now type d: and press enter for d: drive partition. Now repeat steps 3 and 4. Similarly repeat step 5 for all your hard disk partition.

Restart your system and your trouble will should be fixed

/fingers crossed.

do i press enter after each step? and do i space? hmm i think i did something wrong check the image.
thanks
Sorry, you do have to press enter after each command:

1. Open Start>>Run and type cmd and press enter. This will open a command prompt window. On this command prompt window type the following steps.

2. type cd\ (press enter)

3. type attrib -r -h -s autorun.inf (press enter)

4. type del autorun.inf (press enter)

5. Now type F: and press enter for F: drive partition.

If it says that it can't find the file each time you do it then there is no need to worry as it will have nothing to do with auto run however, if it does find the file then after doing these steps see if you can double click your drives then.

Tut - Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide

This may help determine if you have a file causing this in the root of your drives, little things like 'zpharaoh.exe' can be a right pain
Sorry where can i find the root of the my c:\ and f:\. and its not just those two drives when i open my computer and i double-click on any icon from Hard disk drives (2) and Devices with removable storage the error pops up image below. sigh i dont know whats wrong with this.
Yeah, basically when you double click the drive (or in your case... right click then open)
