    What makes you think it's a virus ? ?
    How is the HDD reported in Disk Management ? ?

    Hello saeid

    I take from your post that the Laptop detects the drive ( you said loads drivers for it) but you can't access the drive.

    You could try a program called find and mount from here http://findandmount.com/
    Please not the size of the partitions found if they are showing as 0  size or not ntfs or fat please report back here

    Thanks

      First of all thank you for your reply
      I didn't explain very well, when I attach my external hard to USB, first a sign appear that says you attach your hard then when I want to open my hard there is no icon in My Computer for it, so I tried this with another laptop and it did worked. I don't know how to fix this problem.

      Plug it back into the PC it doesn't show up in...wait 20 seconds then open Disk Management and see if it's listed...if it is right clik it and select Properties and post back with the info....

      Note: For Disk Management right clik My Computer...select Manage...then Disk Management...give it time to populate.

          hello

          From what you listed disk manager is reporting about the drive all you need to do is right click on the drive and and select assign drive letter.
          Then windows will give it the next drive letter. and you should be able to access the drive  :)
