I have just formatted and partitioned my hard drive to run XP Pro and Windows 7. I was having a lot of problems with my PC, one of which was a Recycler error message, attached, every time I tried to open any hard drive. I could only open the drive by right clicking and running Explore. I thought a format would solve this problem but it has made no difference.
Also I have installed Zone Alarm for the first time. I now find I cannot access Windows Update. I ran a search for Windows Update with Google and now everytime I try to access Update, even if I type directly into the address bar it takes me back to Google and I can't get out of it. Do you think this is anything to do with Zone Alarm or something else?
