    As the title says, this piece of crap software changed the name of my C: drive in windows to "Allway sync n go (c:)"

    Does anyone know WHY it would change it when the software is SUPPOSED to be PORTABLE and not install locally?

    I notice two files in my root c: drive that may have caused it:
    First, autorun.inf with contents:
    [autorun]
    open=AllwaySync'n'Go.exe -autorun
    icon="\Users\John\Desktop\Allway Sync 'n' Go\Bin\syncappw.exe"
    action=Launch Allway Sync 'n' Go
    label=Allway Sync 'n' Go

    Second one is allwaysyncngo.ini with contents:
    ..\Users\John\Desktop\Allway Sync 'n' Go

    I removed both files but it doesn't change the name of my c: drive back to what it was..which i don't even remember the name. Also, the icon for my c: drive in windows explorer is no longer a computer icon, it's just one of those broken page icons that you see when no icon is present.

    Can anyone help me figure out why this happened or how I can rename my c: and restore the icon back?

    I was able to change the name of the drive and another icon appeared so that's fixed..not sure why that piece of crap portable software changed it in the first place though.
