    My DVD (E:) is missing when I open My Computer....I checked the device drivers and it is there and checks out as everything is fine? I assume this is a registry problem...any ideas?

    Right click on the taskbar and select show the desktop. Do the icons appear?

    I had a similar problem quite a while back, if my memory serves me as well as I hope, I turned of UPnP and that solved the problem. I can't remember if I turned the service off or I did it in my network places.

    Hope this helps

    Hi there,
    When I run Registry Mechanic all the desktop icons return to normal....before I do this nothing happens even when I right click on the desktop....must be a registry problem, but I can't figure it out.....also wondering if uninstalling the DVD driver and reinstalling might help get back the DVD icon? This icon is not affected by running Registry Mechanic!

    You could try removing the dvd drive using device manager, reboot and let Windows find the device.
    Or, if you have done extensive cleaning with a registry cleaner, restore your backup(s) and see if that works.

    Nothing worked, so I finally tried the Advanced Windows Care Personal Edition (freeware) I'm completely shocked because it fixed everything back to normal:D...this program is worth trying :thumb:
