no access to local drive ?

Hi ,
We have a windows 2003 file  server ,there are 5 local computers who share a file system via a shared drive z:\    they can see the drive with not problems.
admin on the server see the drive accessing via \\server\z no problems , but doubble click the disk in my computer on the server and all you see is a DOS box pop up , We checked for virus with norton cop & spybot & Kaspersky (via client computer) admin has full access via network ,but not localy ?

-Can you access the drive on the server using the Explorer's Folders treeview?
-Can you access the drive from the command prompt?
-Check for a file named autorun.inf in the root of the drive. If there is one delete it. Autorun.inf contains command to run when a drive is opened locally by double-clicking and normally it is not used with hard drives.
