I recently had malware installed on my computer called Antispycheck and I just got it removed but now my disk drives are missing from "My Computer." When I go to "Device Manager" all three drives show up, but they have the exclamation sign next to them, when I right click on it and go to properties, it says "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupt or missing. (Code 39)." I uninstalled the drivers and restarted Windows, Windows found them and installed them, however, they still did not show up in "My Computer" and still had the same error message under "Device Manager." Any help with this problem will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
