Not sure what happened, my computer was pausing every minute for a second, thinking there might have been something the kids installed, I used system restore.

I got this message "Changes made to drive k:\ after this point can not be reversed because the drive was either excluded from System Restore, or was turned off or removed"

Drive K is a seperate physical drive, so no big deal, I dont have programs on that drive that require installing, it is just a drive I use to store data.

Well, now there is no drive K, even after I undo system restore.

Windows XP, Device manager shows the drive there, drivers are working and no conflicts.

So I hope someone has a quick fix!

I think they should have a warning in there that also says that you may lose you drive lol

In Computer Management under Disk Management

and was looking in the wrong part of Device Manager, it does not show there either

Dont ask me why this worked, I removed an SD card that was in the SD drive of the computer and rebooted.

It works now, if that isnt messed up, I dont know what is.
