Do a vrus scan with malwarebytes and superantispyware.

Sounds like a virus to me.

If it's not too much trouble why don't you copy out all the files you need to keep and format the drive.

Hi mia717 sorry for late reply but this answers is for others who are facing this problem and search it on google and land to this page. Its a Virus it hides your Data in a folder with no name yes NO NAME and makes a .Ink file which executes rundll32.exe to produce above error what i did is to

  • Open this hard disk in Linux system Delete .Ink file and Desktop.ini or you should delete all folders and files other than this BLANK NAMED FOLDER.

  • Rename the blank named folder to anything like "amar" without quotes.

  • Now Open again it in Windows. Now you won't see amar Folder where your data is, but its there so don't worry ;) 

  • Now go to Address Bar and after your Hard Disk Drive name type amar e.g. F:/amar and press Enter.

  • And BOOM you got your Files Back :) 


  • Now Cut and Paste all your data where ever You want except the Invisible Folder :)
