Hi,

During wireless setup wizard then it asked me to save config on a
removable drive, I selected D drive. Now my PC thinks my D drive is a
removable drive and have changed Icon(Looks like USB Drive).

I tried Repair option from Power Toys but it still have Removable Drive
icon. How can I tell my computer D drive is a fix drive? I need my old
icon back. BTW, restore point was not created when it changed icon so
can't roll it back with system restore.

Thanks in advance,

Sam

I didn't have those keys in Registry. After doing some google search I
found a post that told me to delete autorun.inf file from root of D
drive and reboot. Fortunately that worked out perfect.

I found following in autorun.inf.

[autorun]
OPEN=setupSNK.exe
ICON=\SMRTNTKY\fcw.ico
ACTION=Wireless Network Setup Wizard

Just delete the file totally and reboot was fix.

Thanks for the help,
Sam
