JSI Tip 1293. Double-clicking a drive icon in My Computer responds with: "Windows cannot find Autorun.exe".

When you double-click a drive icon, you receive:

   Windows cannot find Autorun.exe
   This program is needed for opening files of type 'file'.
If you click on the drive with the right mouse button, the drive attempts to AutoPlay.

Someone/something created an Autorun.inf in the drive root.

Delete it.
