    I cleaned "Drowor" virus on my PC, but I have a problem after the infection, a hard disk error appears... When I make double click with mouse a windows messaje appears: "Instalation program of Windows XP" "Install or configure windows components use Control Panel"

    I want to know if anybody can help me to fix that error.

    Thank you for your time.

    Hi !

    When you double click on your hard drive in Explorer (MyComputer) you should open the hard drive because the first default action is Open:

    I can see from the screenshot that in your case it is not Open but something like this:

    It seems like the virus has changed this .

    I would suggest you edit the registry .
    First make a copy of it just in case something goes wrong.
    Goto Start->Run->type regedit.exe and press ENTER
    Right click on MyComputer -> choose Export and type a name (save somewhere on the Desktop,for example)

    Then while still in regedit , navigate to H_KEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MountPoints2

    Carefully delete all entires with { } around like these

    Then close regedit and restart the computer and try again . Hope this helps!

    Should a problem with the registry occur after computer restart , you can simply doubleclick on the file (back-up of the registry) and restore it to its previous state
