I would like to pull my hair out !!! I was trying to do some house cleaning on my comp (Acer from Wal-mart). My drives were filling up and I was burning stuff to disk, deleting unwanted stuff such as pics and music to free-up space. I moved some smaller stuff from my D: (partition) to the C:. Then I tried to format the D: and I get a message: "WINDOWS Can't Format D:\ - Check to see that the disk and drive are connected properly, disk isn't read-only....." , etc, etc. The D: is a partition !!!!! So I go into Computer Management and the whole drive is unreadable. The Comp starts up and runs ok but now it shows a blank D: that can't be formatted or partion deleted etc.
I was wondering how to fix this problem? Anyone have any help for me? I also tried to format the D: from the Computer Management tool and I get this message: "The maximum number of secrets that may be stored in a single system has been exceeded" !?@*#$% Help Please?...What did I do?

heelo

have you tried command prompt?
start > all programs > accessories > right click command prompt. choose run as administrator.
type format D: (or whatever drive you want) it will tell you that it will erase all data. press y and enter. it will take aloooong time.

good luck

PS: notice theres a space between format and D:

It seems to be a very nasty Virus, but Someone from another forum suggest "pervx3.0" and paying the $15 a month subscription for one month to get that off. A lot cheaper than having to go buy a new Hard drive. You should go download it and see if it turns up any viruses. If it does pay for the $15 fix the problem and cancel unless you want to keep it for a year to help protect your system.
