USB Not there

by novaracer1 / March 1, 2009 11:41 AM PST

Hi. I just reformatted my puter(Windows Vista) and a usb drive keeps showing up in "Devices With Removable Storage". I can not get rid of it. I can uninstall it and as soon as it's done, windows detects a usb device and installs a driver for it again. Thanks for any help with this.

Look at your post. No one would know you didn't have a printer.

I could ask 20 questions but won't. Think about what else there is in the machine, outside the machine, connected, etc. and then think if you can use it anyway.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
