I recently had a virus but i got rid of it with Norton, i also did a full system recovery. when i tried to plug my ipod in my computer wouldnt even recognize my ipod, i looked in my computer and found there was no removable devices, i looked in device manager and there is nothing in there either, my plug-and-play is also on automatic, i have tried everything i can think of and im really desperate to get this working can someone please help me?

OK, save the file to your desktop (devicemanagerrestore.reg)

Now go to start menu/run, type


press return

At the command prompt, type

cd Desktop

press return.

Your prompt should say

c:\documents and settings\<account name>\Desktop


regedit devicemanagerrestore.reg

Press return.

You should see the requester with the OK/Yes button to click.
