My Buffalo Ministation USB Hard-disk was infected with a trojan and was detected by AVG. I got rid of it, but now have the problem of being unable to open the hard-disk by double-clicking on it. Deleting the autorun.inf which the trojan put in does not help. I have to right click on the disk and click explore.

Any idea how I can restore the hard disk back to its proper behaviour?
