Okk, so my computer was messing up alot, so I restarted, and pressed the F10 thing and ran the setup again.

Now, I just started to want to playing a computer game again, and when I put it into my disk-drive, it wont work. It will not read, and it does not read music files either.
Is there something that I need to install, or what can I do to clarify this problem better. I know its vague but I dont really know what to say.

what f10 thing?

You seem to imply this is a normal thing...did you reinstall your operating system using some system restore?

What kind of PC is this? Make and model?

Please don't post hijackthis logs in this forum unless asked--and then, only attach them

I need you to do two things

First,
start > run
devmgmt.msc
<enter>

Anything with a yellow !?

Second, visit windows update
At the very least, you are using an old version of IE and that needs to be updated

well, that would explain it...right click one, choose uninstall, reboot

Then, go back there, right click the other, choose uninstall, then reboot.

Windows should redetect both
