I've yet to find SP2 to break any virus and spyware free machine. And ... we've done hundreds at the office.
If the problem was widespread, you'd think I'd see at least one machine that broke and ... didn't have virus/spyware installed.
After installing SP2 and rebooting, my G drive, the second half of my primary HD, disappeared. PartMagic 7 revealed that it had become a "hidden" partition. Although PM7 appeared to unhide the partition when commanded, upon rebooting the partition was still hidden. How can I recover use of the partition and the programs/data thereon?
