Drive changed from C to C.

Please help! :tazz:

When I run Norton WinDoctor it repeatedly finds 130 problems all under the category of "Drive changed from C to C." It is unable to repair any of these problems, stating that:

"A removable drive has been inserted or removed, or, a directory was moved to a new drive causing drive C to appear as drive C. These problems should not be fixed automatically"

I haven't got a clue what it is talking about! The only hardware change I have made in the last few months was to replace my CD RW drive with a DVD RW drive, without any complications.

Any ideas anybody?

Thanks,

Geordio

Sounds to me like Windoctor needs removing ---- are you sure it's XP compatible? If you want a reliable check and fix for registry errors, get rid of Windoctor and download 'RegSupreme' free version:

It's never let me down or removed something in error.

Hi pip22,

Thanks for the reply. I have downloaded RegSupreme v.1.2, ran it and found 916 problem entries! Registry Mechanic v4.0 and WinDoctor never found that many before!

What do you recommend I do now? Should I delete all 916 entries?

WinDoctor has only recently thrown this problem up - I've had it for almost 2 years without problems so far. This is why I am worried it was caused by some Trojan or other. I have recently had to remove ptask.exe and internetoptimiser.exe after foolishly downloading a shareware program.

Cheers,

Geordio
