    Hi
    I have a PC with XP Pro SP2. Recently a "new" drive appeared in "My
    Computer" and I cannot get rid of it. I originally thought the drive
    was something to do with installing "Clone CD" but I've uninstalled
    Clone CD and the drive remains. I've tried uninstalling it in Device
    Manager which is successful until I reboot the PC and back it comes.
    I've have checked Config.Sys for dubios entries in startup but
    nothing.
    Also I'm trying to install a slave hard drive but WinXP will not see
    it. The slave is listed in the POST so it's just XP that can't see it.
    I believe that the "bogus" drive is somehow stopping XP Pro seeing the
    slave so I really need to get rid of it. Any help or suggestions would
    be appreciated.
    TIA.

    It was most likely created with the CD install. you should be able to
    disable it in the services.

    Start | Run <type in> services.msc <enter> snoop around it's there.
