Both my cd rom and dvd writer have stopped working windows finds them but they do not show in my computer and in device manager they both have yellow dots. I have the virus above and it says it cannot be cleaned does this mean a clean install.And would the virus cause my cd players not to work.

I run win 98se dual boot with win xp pro.

Thanks Zebby

Sounds like the drivers are missing. Try uninstalling them in device manager by right clicking on the drives.,

Then restart, it should then be Ok.

If not, download the drivers from the website for your drives such as lg click here or whatever make they are,

Ended doing a clean install because i wanted to gtake off 98 se and just have xp and this seamed a good time to do it.

Just geting things put back on now.

Cheers Zebby
