Hello - any thoughts?

It seems our cd driver is no longer recognising cds. What do I do?

You could try uninstalling the cd player in Device Manager and then reboot on which the Hardware wizard should give you the found new hardware and reinstall it. Worth a try.

If this is the same machine you posted about redirect problems, etc. Then I would hold off trying to make further repairs until a clean bill of health is issued.

This may very well be related to issues you mentioned in your previous post.


Just saw bluesjunior reply. That may do the trick but I doubt it. Will not hurt to try.

Hello,

There is a strong possibility that this is related to the infection issues you have posted about here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/255805/help-nasty-rootkit-attack/ to avoid complications, I shall close this topic.
