Out of despair I have started this topic... I have spent a full day on the net looking for a solution to this problem but without any success.
Here is the story :
Plugged in my external USB hard drive (LaCie Big Disk Extreme +) and it indicted that it was installing new device driver software (Config AL2_LBDRJHa8_O_F USB device). Did not do this before... Happend on two separate computers so it seems to be coming from the disk. The result is that the disk does not show up in Windows explorer...
I Googled the device driver name but did not find anything. Tried deleting or disabling the driver in the control panel. Tried many of the free autorun and usb virus removal/prevention programs. Tried disabling autorun using Ultimate Windows Tweaker. Also tried starting the computer with BartPE and Ubuntu but I can't see the files on the USB disk...Just seems that nothing can catch this beast before it causes damage...
Would greatly appreciate any help!
