    Sent you a PM, make sure your user has "Full Control" over the drive.

    You probably are not THE administrator.. you are in the administrator's group.

    A restart solved the issue after deleting the autorun folders.

    Thank you everyone.

    - Create a user with admin previleges - say "Test".
    - Now login to machine with the regular user (in my case it's user1). Right click computer -->manage-->Local users and groups-->go to propeties of user1-->remove user1 from administrators group and add him to only "Users" group.
    - Now logoff user1 and relogin with user1.
    - Now after logging in, try changing drive labels. Surprisingly.. u will be able to change the drive labels now.. No issues will be observed.
    - Once u r done, logoff user1, login with the test user which we created earlier, and add user1 to admin group again.
    - This worked for me. After this, u can deleete test user...
