My two internal drives and external usb drive are listed in device manager. But I am unable to use. What are upper and lower filters? Something new to me. Also showing virus located on optical drive.

Thanks for the quick response, my other issue is currently in the hands of your spyware pros. The virus I mentioned was on a disc, problem there solved. The link provided did not help. When I add files to burn I get no compatible drives found. Although like stated everything in device manager under drives says everything is working properly.

There's a nasty rootkit(TDSS variants) going around that prevents all burning software from polling the drives, we have several threads over at the Imgburn forum.

That's all I can say since the poster has an open HJT log

This is a symptom of a common infection

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Thats the one I have just removed from my system, hides all your dives and locks your dvd/cd and creates all sorts of nasty hooks, could be the same problem. Load imgburn and see if you get the "Too Many Secrets " erro as i did! Good thinking Dachew, I only removed mine last night and it didnt even cross my mind in this case :thumbsup:

Thanks, still waiting on HJT results and will lean towards rootkit problem. Last software I used was nero also tried something called cdburner xp.
I just checked manager and only usb drive is listed. Not having any strong knowledge but it just seems since sp3, explorer8 and netframework 3.5 did things seem to slow down and actup. The HJT is in regards to a search engine redirect. Since I have learned to keep critical data off operating system redoing windows is not a problem, but for once I just want to understand and find solutions other than reinstall. Just to say this site is very in depth and put together nicely good work to those involved and those who are here to help.
