Previously i was using xp which got virus and half of my whole hard disk of different drives became empty. then i formatted C: and installed windows 7 ultimate 32bit. after about its 1 week, D: drive got access denied. permission was of full control so i did chkdsk. yes, it worked and later again same problem. Now i got same error on all drives (except c: till now) including usb drive. when i do chkdsk it works and after 10min or 1 hr or 2-3 days same problem. i did full chkdsk and virus scan but nothing found. please help

Question: "whole drive of different drives" - do you mean lettered drive partitions within one physical drive?

For example one physical would be assigned C:. However, end users can divide up the physical drive into partitions with system or end user assigned drive letters for each partition.

You must be sure that you go into the configuration screens and establish the applicable end user admin and system rights to each partition.

Look for the System Reserved Properties Window, Security tab.

Viruses typically install across multiple drives. Was this ransomware? You need to upgrade to Win10. Have you run disk cleanup on all your drives?
