Problem: at startup get message "administrator has prohibited access to CD DVD ROM drives"
On my computer display there is a red circle with line through it on the following A: floppy E: cd-rw drive, G: magic jack and H:DVD ROM
I am set up as administrator
op sys is windowsXP sp3
So far I've: ran Avasi Spybot and SuperAntiVirus
uninstalled NERO BURN application
did a restore to a previous date after combofix was used
also had a one time message 'Administrator has prohibited access to USB/1394 mass storage device

still can"t get access to any of these drives and I don't know if it a virus or hardware problem
