Just ran the Bootvis utility and followed the steps to the 'T', after optimizing my system and upon reboot the DVD and CD writer driveers did not load!! I've gone into device manager and the drives are there but with an exclamation icon on them. It says: 'Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19) Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.' I've uninstalled both devices and reinstalled and they stay exactly the same!! ARHHHHH!! Really frustrated...Is there someting in the registry that I have to change back to default?? (Is it as easy as changing a value from 0 to 1 or something?? I don't know registry editing all that well. Thanks in advance, J PS- I've also tried to do system restore but of course I can't even access it. You need 200MB of free space to access system restore, I made 200 MB free and every time I go into system restore it says I don't have 200MB free!?? That's pissing me off too.
