In the last few days i got a few viruses, download.trojan and trojan.desktophijack.... i have since removed all of them , run adaware, ewido etc, and everything is all cleared up now. I then went to play a cd, and my cd drives arent displaying in WMP/Winamp etc, i then looked in My Computer and they are not displaying there either.
So i have looked in device manager and they are both displayed in there, as:
Compaq DVD-ROM DVD-117
HP DVD Writer 200j
BUT both have yellow exclamation marks to the left of them.
Then when i click properties, on both it says:
Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)
Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.
So, a friend told me to shut down, un plug the drives, turn on, agree to f1 prompt, boot up, then shut down, connect the drives again, agree to f1 prompt, boot up, and he said it should work after this, but, i did not work and i still get the same error message for them in device manager.
They were working fine, and just stopped all of a sudden
I would be very grateful for some help, thanks
