Hi all, 1st post to what looks like a great forum.
I'll start from the start so hopefully you can help me.
I'm running XP pro SP3, Office 2003 SP3. IE7.
After a nasty christmas virus I had to rebuild the C drive of my PC. I have one HDD, partitioned into C (Software) D (Files) and (E) Internet stuff.
Since the rebuild, there are a few odd things, all of which I think are related.
(a) A non important update from Windows will not install. It is only a HID update but that isn't the point, it should install if I ask for it.
(b) In the "Safely remove hardware" icon in the noti tray, I can see my 3 partitions of the HDD! Not good! They also appear same place in my other user account, for my 6 year old. He could select this by mistake....so could my mrs on the main account.
(c) After the rebuild, windows created another account (Limited) called ASP.net machine A. I understand this is quite normal though (From internet research).
(d) I posted to the discussion groups Microsoft.window.update and although I can see my question, I cannot see the post nor any other answers to it. "Community message not avaliable".
I've convinced myself that all these problems are related, but (a) and (b) are the only ones concerning me at the moment.
MS updates discussion page
edit...apols, I didn't realise pictures weren't allowed.
