When I was uninstalling CCleaner, I noticed that I have a program named Web Companion.  It may have installed when I installed another program.  I didn't specifically install it.  I've never used it.  Is it okay to remove it or is it something that Windows or Internet Explorer or Firefox needs to run?

 

 

Edit:  I decided not to install HD Tune.  It was a Trial version and I don't wish to buy it later on.

In Post #116, I mentioned this.  Do you have any idea why these drives aren't recognized by My Computer or Disk Management and why my computer won't boot up

 

Last week, I bought another hard drive, connected it to my pc, formatted it, labelled it Drive D and moved files onto it.  It worked with no problems all day that day.  The next morning, when I booted up, my pc wouldn't get past Verifying DMI Pool Data.  I shut down my pc, disconnect all the hard drives that I had connected except my C drive and started connecting one at a time again.  The hard drive that was causing Windows to stop loading to my desktop was Drive D and 3 others are no longer recognized in My Computer and Disk Management. 

 

Do you have any idea what's going on?  Should I start a new topic for this?

Are these connected directly to the mobo or to the 8 port adapter?  Do the drives show up in BIOS Setup?

The hard drives don't show up in My Computer or Disk Management whether I connect them to the mobo or the adapter card.  They were working well when I had XP running.  Except drive D, which was new, and I had it connected to the mobo.  I had to disconnect it because my computer wouldn't boot up past Verifying DMI Pool Data when it was connected even though it was working the night before.
