Error Accessing C Drive in My Computer

Hi All,

Getting the following error come up when I double-click my C drive in My Computer:

"Windows cannot find 'RECYCLER\S-5-1-65-100024409-100018370-100031442-3857.com' Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click Start button, and then click Search."

Any ideas?

The easiest & most immediate way to solve this issue would using Flash Disinfector
however you need to know this problem was caused by malware (worm, Trojan,etc..) , so you will need something Malwarebyts anti-malware to recover & ensure the infection is totally gone.

hope this helps.
