just restore your system to an earlier date when everything was well and fine. and if this did not happen because u fiddled a little with ur system, it is probably because of some virus, so it will recur(assuming everything turns out fine after u restore), try cleaning it up with some good antivirus. do keep us posted.

OK, I don't think Reinstalling or formatting is a good Idea.

There is a small program can remove it all, but i don't have it right now

Don't REINSTALL or FORMAT just wait, I'll get it here.

Well this problem is mainly due to your Autorun.inf file may have got currupted or virus.
To access ur drive go to run and type the drive lettrer. You will be able to open the drive.
Try copying the autorun.inf from other pc to ur pc.
Other wise u can create it urself..Refer to web.

No, This is not Virus. Just right click on the drive and select open. Then type in the address bar Autorun.inf so that the address reads C:\Autorun.inf replacing C by the letter of the infected Drive. If that file opens you have found your problem.
To remove this take command prompt ( Start menu >> Run >> Type cmd and press enter ). I hope this problem is not in your C drive. Let it be in D drive. So type D: and press enter in the command prompt.
Now your address in the command prompt will read D:\>.
Type ' del autorun.inf ' without quotes and press enter.
If the problem still persists, just tell me..ok
