This is a good recommendation. There is probably a BIG YELLOW exclaimation point on the device manager list where this drive was listed. Uninstall, Reboot... Well said, "Bassmaster" - by the way do you like all of this rain we are having BASS?

Thanks man

This weather is awful, I guess we can't really complain though. We had an unbelievably nice spring and summer, it was like every weekend was nicer than the next, so I guess we had this coming!

Me and the leaf blower are going to be spending some quality time together once all this rain/wind finally stops

Yeah, it was a great spring/summer. But, now i think we are going to have to suffer with a horrid fall/winter. Cold rainy days and icey snowy messy days... I hate it.

Sorry.. we didn't mean to hijack the original posters thread...
Continue...

I can't wait to hear if this removing the CMOS battery actually did anything at all. I will keep watching.

I mean it's free, 'it's something to do, but I don't see how it's relevant.

Good luck though.
