Hi about a month ago I think I had some malware on my laptop (running xp pro) , I ran several utilities that detected and cleaned some spyware on my laptop, (I always run super antispyware but it would not run any longer so I ran malwarebytes / search and destroy in safe mode, then deleted malware and reinstalled SAS and it now works again). I believe the infection is cleaned now.
But ever since then my drive D (cd rom drive) is missing, doesnt show up at all under MY COMPUTER. I hit the eject button and the drive ejects, so it does function. I decided to pull it out and install the drive in another laptop, where the other laptop detected the cd drive and successfully coppied files, so we know the drive works.
I dont got any restore points saved prior to the incident, I think the malware wiped them. I also hit add hardware and it still does not detect. any ideas?
also the laptop I am using is a dv 9000.
