The problem is that, Im not sure if it was after, before, or meanwhile I was fixing my computer with the help of Geeks to go(the topic is this: http://www.geekstogo...owtopic=249783), from a Win32/Rootkit.Agent.ODG, I came to note that when I plug my usb pendrive memorys to my computer, it recognizes them partially, it just dosent let me open them, and says they are without format, but if I go into propiertys, I can see the brand name and everthing, so it makes me think its not a hardware problem. Ive tryied my pendrive on other computers and its ok, its working. The same problem, I have with my CD player. The pointer changes to the one with the arrow and the cd image, like when its reading something, but then, it just dosent opens a thing and says "insert a cd".

Aside this, im thinking that there might be something else about this, cause when i close some programs, like winamp or... cant remember names really, but a msg of error comes out, like an error on a dll, with the red circle and white X on it, this also happens around 4 windows of error when a program its rebooting my computer, but i cant really read them or take a SS of it cause it shuts down too fast.

Does anyone have any idea, or has a plan to help me check/fix this please?

forgot to add, that if you take the time to read the last 3 posts of the geekteacher that helped me on the topic I posted first, you would know that combofix is the one that disabled this thing that its causing me this problem, so who can help me check if its a enabled/disabled problem, and any ideas how to enable it again?

Thanks in advance

Ive been adviced to try a autofix from windows, that repairs the autoplay on the drives with no results.
Please, someone help me check wheres the problem, or the only chance to fix this is by formateing my c:\ ?

Go to device manager and uninstall all USB drivers. If you have hardware like printer and camera working well, don't uninstall them. Reboot and let windows install them afresh.

Right now I'm at the university; ill arrive home in like 3-4hrs, then ill uninstall my USB drives, and then reboot the computer, so when it comes back on, it will say "new hardware found" and i install them as windows normaly does?
Cause i have no installer or drives from it.

About the CD player, should i do the same?

Thanks in advance for your help.
