When i try to open my hdicon with double-clicking he tries to open a program (tmaker.exe), that i installed once.i allready desinstalled it, but he always tries to search for the program. It never happened to me this problem.
I can open my harddisk with rightclicking and then the OPEN or Explore command, but not with doubleclicking anymore. ???
I noticed one difference with my other harddrives : when i right-click there is an option more in the menu : "Automatic play".
Since a have this problem, every other program i try to install, my computer lock up, and i have to reset.
Can please sombody help me out, because i cannot just format my computer, and start again because there is a lot of special software installed on this computer(firm-computer).

Thanx

That program created AUTOPLAY.INF on your hard disk. This is making the system fire the program automatically. Delete this file and the problem should go away.
