I tried to unlock Q: as described. Q: is nor displayed when using Start->Computer->Explorer,
but the Total Commander is still showing it.

If the music files etc are ones you recognize, and do not seem to have been installed by someone else, then I'd say the Q drive has been created by one of your installed programs.

There's no obvious signs of active malware on your machine that I can see.

One final question. I put attached a screenshot. Because I have a strange MFC-Aplikation on the taskbar,
which I have seen from time to time, but not for a long time now.
Might this app create a virtual drive?

I know practically nothing about MFC (Microsoft Foundation Class) applications, so I can't really help you with that.

Potentially I suppose it's possible to write a MFC application capable of creating a virtual disk, but I don't think it's likely.

to sum up:
* there was no malware found.
* the virtual drive might be from one of my applications.
* the MFC app -> I have to investigate somewhere else

Right?

Yes, that sums things up fairly well.

We need to remove the tools we've been using to look at your computer ....

Let's clear out OTL and the files and folders it created. This will also remove GMER (except for the random named file on your Desktop which will need to be deleted manually).
  • Double click OTL.exe to launch the programme.
  • Click on the CleanUp! button.
  • OTL will download a list from the Internet, if your firewall or other defensive programmes alerts you, allow it access.
  • You will be prompted to allow the clean up procedure, click Yes
  • When finished exit out of OTL
  • Now delete OTL.exe (if still present).

Unlocker can be uninstalled using control panel > programs > uninstall a program


Sorry if we haven't really resolved your query, but this forum deals only with malware related issues and as far as I can see you do not have any malware on your computer.

Tools are removed.
"No malware found" is also a good result.

Thanks.
