Hello, I am having problems with my USB drives and devices in Windows 7. Everything works on my girlfriends computer, but fails on mine. We're both running Windows 7. I have re-installed Windows, but that did not fix it. Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool found "ldr16.exe" and partially removed it but that did not fix my problem. Research linked "ldr16.exe" to TLD3 rootkit which apparently hides in the MBR and hooks into my computers device IRQ, handle, I/O or something like that. Windows takes forever to recognize the drive in Windows Explorer, but it is recognized in Devices and Printers. All the drives that don't work on my computer do have a drive letter assigned to them. I am now working on a fresh install with minimal updates. I would like to try and get this fixed without losing the data on my other 3 drives. I keep my smallest (120GB) for my OS only so I can wipe that at any time. Please note that my mainboard is a Sapphire PC-A9RD480Adv. Thanks!
