Evening all,

i have googled the search term and came across another memeber with a similar problem http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/lof...hp/t171341.html i have had a look and am still struggling to find a solution to this other than to format the pc and start again.

i have 3 physical disks and one split for my OS

Disk 1 (Old OS) contains a copy of WinXP that i used to use and no longer do
Disk 2 (Store) contains all my Pics music downloads etc
Disk 3 (OS) Contains my current OS and (Data) contains my documents

I have Symantec Corp installed as well as Adaware, Spybot Search and Destory and Malwarebytes all free and only symantec uses real time scanning

I have done scans on all and they all reported back deleting things retstarted and still had the problem, i also booted in to my old os disk where i have mcafee Shield corp installed and run a full scan as well. Again listed loads and deleted it, so i tried again today and i still have the same issue when opening any drive apart from the OS i get Windows cannot find 'resycled\boot.com'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again To search for a file, click the Start button and then click search.

i can how ever access the drives through Run or if i type the drive letter directly in the address bar.

Any ideas??
