I'm not asking if you personally use alcohol...there is a program called Alcohol 120% that can change how the drives are mounted...
anyway try this...back up your registry BEFORE DOING THIS..by creating a restore point...name it something like before D drive fix

then click on start ...run...type in regedit...press enter... then press ctrl+f...in the box that opens type in mountpoints2...delete it
then again press ctrl+f again find mountpoints2 ...repeat as many times as necessary until it can't find anymore then reboot
