How can I remove malware that is preventing me from accessing my local disk D?

My Local disk D is not opening. When I open it, a dialog box appears and says ‘kick my’ and ass when I click OK it says ‘you are screwed’. If I want to open it I have to use Internet Explorer. Why this happened?

    MalwareBytes Anti-Malware or a superantyspyware .... go to safe mod ..but before restarting and entering to safe mode,update all those antivirus/malware definitions,then start in safe mode and do all the full scans you can do

    Hello, download and run full scans with following software:

    Superantispyware portable version: no need to update and you can run it from flashdrive:

    http://www.superantispyware.com/portablescanner.html

    Malwarebytes: update it before running full scan:

    http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/

    If you do not have an antivirus installed, there are several free options like:

    avast:

    microsoft security essentials:

    You can also visit the link provided below to get an Antivirus ISO image to be burnt to CD and run it from there:

    Make sure to run full scans and when system is reported completely clean, get rid of restore points.

    from above link follow simple instructions make disc and run as instructed. As this runs on a live Linux cd it does not boot into windows therefore it scans the complete hard drive and removes any infection even those in hidden windows files

    Try to install Super Anti-Spyware or Malwarebytes, then full-scan your pc.

    perhaps to use windows restore point to revert back just before the accident.

    check any suspicious keys in the path (open regedit)
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MountPoint2\
    and delete
    or perhaps to delete Mountpoints2 key and restart computer

    If you are using some commercial antivirus,then scan your whole PC.Quickly backup your data and if possible format your whole PC before the infection spreads to other drives.

    Download MalwareBytes Anti-Malware from softpedia.com
    Install it. (Takes only 2 minutes)
    Update it. (Takes only 1 minute)
    Restart your PC in safe mode and run MalwareBytes (full scan + quick scan).

    I'm sure it will solve your problem.

    Also hit Win+R key and type msconfig and hit enter and disable all startup programs except your anti-virus.

    For additional security, downlaod iobit advanced sustem care, install it and run deep scan.
