    I am using the evaulation tds-3 and everything was fine on Thursday after scanning with tds-3. Well Friday I decided to setup a raid 0 system so I went to my local Compusa and purchased a new harddrive. Today with everything installed properly I ran tds-3 and got hundreds of trojans showing up on my c drive. The wierd thing is my c drive is my zip drive but I dont have a disk in it. When I do have a disk in the zip drive the trojans/worms do not show up on tds-3. I have since totally reformatted, scanned with virus protection, spybot, adaware etc. Everything is fine until I take my zip disk out then the trojans/worms start to appear. I have never had any of the files that tds-3 is showing. I have also tried to delete the trojans/worms in tds-3 but they keep reappearing. Has anybody ever seen/heard of this weird sitution? Thanks for any help.

    Hi No Name, ;)

    Yes, it's been seen before, it's due to your main drive not being the default "C" . I try an find the thread and post a link.

    Yep, that was the exact same thing happening to me. It sounds like I need the main drive to be labeled C. Is there any way of changing the drive labels around? Thanks for your help again.

    Hi No Name, ;)

    That's a little past my expertise/knowledge (if I have any?) ... One of the wonderful/knowledgable DCS folks ... will be along to advise on that. Shortly, Im sure.

    Sorry, I couldn't be of more help!

    I do appreciate the help. I had a cow when I saw those things appearing when I ran tds. I even reformatted and spent pretty much the whole day reinstalling windows and scanning my computer with ever known virus protection and trojan protection. I should have come here first--lol

    Hi, No Name

    Right Click>My Computer>

    Left Click>Manage>

    Left Click>Disk Management>

    Right Click Your Raid0 Array

    Left Click>Change Drive Letter aand Paths....>

    Left Click>Change>

    The Zip Might be best to do first as it is useing the letter C:\ [Best to ReBoot then]

    Take Care,

    PS: Best to make removable media drives [not a:\] CD and ZIP's X:\ Y:\ Z:\

    Hi, dog

    Glad to be of some help.

    The first thing I do when I do an install is change the drive letters of
    Optical Drives to Y:\ and Z:\. [as most PC only two OD's]

    Then if any HDD are added the will not get mixed with the OD's.

    We all do most days, the days we stop learning is the day we Die. [Howwwwwwwwwwwwwww]

    Take Care,
