Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Phillips MT2100 I have a Phillips Freeline MT2100 computer and have just realised that for some strange reason I can no longer save anything to CD (mainly music) or in fact upload anything from a CD as it just doesn''t seem to recognise that it has disk drives any more. Can anyone help? The PC has also recently developed a problem when playing back music either through the Media Player or Limewire with the sound becoming distorted - again, I'm not sure if this has anything to do with the above p


Answers :

I have seen a recent malware (short for malicious software) program that disables the cd-roms and prevents access to the c: drive by making registry changes. Go to download.com and download Malwarebytes and run it. It helped me get rid of this problem. This particular malware was pretty nasty as it prevented me from accessing the drives (no access through My Computer, Windows key + E (Windows Explorer) and access to it from the start menu was removed, and no USB drives either! I had admin rights and was still denied. The only way I could beat it was to boot into safemode with networking and download Malwarebytes. Try this first. Since you are using Peer to Peer software (Limewire) sharing you are a ripe target for viruses and malware.
