"C:\resycled\ntldr.com is not a valid Win32 application"

I was on my computer and was trying to access my HDDs when something unexpected came up. I double-clicked on "My Computer" and tried to get access to one of my HDDs (the one I was trying to get into was called "MMHDD"). It came up with a window saying "C:\resycled\ntldr.com is not a valid Win32 application." I then tried to access my Flash Drive, but it did the same. The same with all my hard drives. I can access them via command prompt, even via the run command. But I cant access them via explorer worth anything. Whaddido?

You have a virus that was contained in a certain codec install.

Proably changed your keys located at:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MountPoints2\

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MountPoints2\C

and so on

Okay, all. This soved everything. Go to malwarebytes.com. They have a free antivirus scanning software that took out all of my viruses including the resycled/ntldr one and about 30 other I didnt know about. That is the best antimalware I have ever had. I even bought kaspersky, and that was a total waste. The malwarebytes one is best.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
