Abrir REMOVED…
i have found the solution..even though i have fully cleaned out the viruses or malware/trojan, it still didnt fix the problem..

however, their it is, two hidden files sitting in c:drive are temp.exe file application and auotrun.inf file. I just deleted both file and deleted previous restore point and restarted P.C.. Then the default “open” c /drive came back. For flash drive and external HDD, same solution applied; identify both hidden autorun and temp .exe file, delete it and remove flash or ext drive. Their is no registry altering required…

any reason why malware and trojan,nod32 antivirus doesnt pick up this abrir issues????

    it gives you "abrir" for first option instead of the default "open"... Does that mean that "Open" is replaced by "Abrir"? Or does it mean that "Abrir" is the first option and "Open" is later in the list? it tries to open in a search other programs... Is that what happens when you select "Abrir"? Perhaps Abrir Messenger was installed on that PC and not properly uninstalled? Tom

    Abrir = Open It's a Spanish word. :-)

    It's almost clear to me that you need to clean your computer. (Let me say the "Abrir" might also be a Portuguese word. Just in case ;-))

    Her guys... yes tomliotta the "open" is replaced by "Abrir", and if you click abrir it tries to open with other programs.... the only options to get it to default "open" that we knowot i to reformat hdd drive or flash drive, or external hdd...... The drive icon changes origional icon of drive into flash drive look alike..

    sorry, we do not install abrir messenger on our p.c or laptop..we suspected it would be trojans or malware or some autorun virus..we started geting this issues late last year.. when one p.c is affected with abrir...once you insert flash drive or hdd it affects how you open themm...it replaces "open" with "abrir". is this clear enough???sorry for any incoveniant...

    I would not recommend messing with the registry to fix this. Even if you have in fact removed any malware, there could be files that are still corrupt and could cause malfunction. In some cases the best solution is to format and reinstall the OS. Also, make sure your flash drives are not the ones propagating the infection.

    It's becoming a little more clear. when one p.c is affected with abrir…once you insert flash drive or hdd it affects how you open themm…it replaces “open” with “abrir”. Does that mean that the affected PC doesn't show "Abrir" until after a flash drive or new HDD is added? Or does it mean that "Abrir" only appears in the menus for the inserted flash drive or HDD? Tom
