I tweaked my startup options referencing descriptions, and going a step further, using autoruns.exe. I know, I know, I really thought I had this thing tuned well. Sooo . . . in "My Computer" the (2) drives do not display. Inserting a disc does nothing. In the "Computer Management" drop down I find yellow circle exclamations over the drive icons. The "Device status" states:
A driver (service) for this device has been disabled. An alternate driver may be providing this functionality. (Code 32)
Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.
I have tried to uninstall / reinstall with out success. Looking further I have found reference to dependencies on Logical disc Mgr. , Plug and Play, and RPC. My fear is that I MAY have deleted an "RPC" if found, based on the description in the start up list entry.
Your thoughts PLEASE.

Thank you for the direction, But . . .
I made about 6 attempts from recent, to one month ago, progressively further back. Each time I received this notice:
RESTORATION INCOMPLETE - Your Computer Could Not Be Restored To XX Mar. 09
No changes have been made to your computer

And my drives remain inoperative. Any and all other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
