So, very recently I have run into quite an epidemic, that is driving my crazy. I am not an expert when it comes to computers, so hopefully somebody here can help me out.
I rebooted my computer not too long ago. The system gave me an option to boot in an earlier version of Windows, or Windows 7. I chose the earlier version as my networking card wasn't Windows 7 or Vista supported. So, my computer booted into XP like usually I have it do. This time however, something unusual happened.
Now, just note quickly that before the reboot, one of the few things I did was add another virutal drive to Daemon Tools.
Proceeding, when I had rebooted, I had noticed that 3/4 of my desktop icons were not displaying properly. Fine, I'll use TuneUp Utilities to repair the problem. As I expected, it didn't work. Now, when I check "My Computer" I have noticed that the virtual drives I had before reboot is gone, and my alternate drive (D) where I store my large files, is now E, which I suppose is the reason for the icons not displaying properly. Ok, no problem, I'll just change the shortcuts again and just deal with the fact D is now E and E is now D. However, when I launched Daemon Tools again, I couldn't add a Virtual Drive again (Just in case anyone was wondering, I was trying to get a copy of Office 07. I promise to the good lord, I did buy it, but I won't go into details).
Now, the core that Windows is stored on is now on the P drive. I thought it might be a virus, but SuperAntiSpyware found no problems. Everything's jumbled around, and I do not know what the problem is. I would reboot, but I'm afraid that another unexpected turn of events may occour. If anyone has any advice or tips, then I would GREATLY appreciate it.
