N. Hazari,

Let's see if this solves the problem...

Plug in your USB pen drive.

Download Unhide.exe

Save it to the Desktop:
Right-click on unhide.exe, and select: Run as Administrator

Restart the computer.

Let us know how it goes. We will need to get rid of the malware that brought this on.

I would also recommend using Flash Disinfector by SuBs if aaflac44's suggestion does not work:

Simply double click the .Exe file,
Follow the prompts that appear,
Then exit the program and reboot when finished.

Flash Disinfector will remove whatever worm you may have on your USB drive.
