try running some ad-aware or spybot, maybe its something like that, and have you tried restarting your computer?

This could be SPYWARE. Open up task manager and get a screenshot and post it here. Maybe one of us can notice if there are any fishy processes going on. But usually when this happens it is an indication that maybe a keylogger is on your PC.

hmm... this is no good. i dont typically do real dumb things, but i did delete a bunch of programs and take some out of my startup. and now my E drive (my 160 sata) isnt recognizing, its detecting in the bios.. and it gives me the detect new hardware thing, if i reinstall will all my stuff still be there.. Like usable????

i ran ad-aware and spyware and so.. hopefully that helped but im not gettin the jumpiness anymore. ..i realllly need that drive back safely, and soon, i got tons of stuff on there. (HL2 and Steam not the least of which )

FoxyLoxy,

hm.. you have lot of unnecesary programs in the task manager. I guess some might me spyware. before you do any manual deletion, i suggest you to run atleast 2 anti-spywares and 2 ad-aware programs [ with the latest updates]. Run them in safe mode.
