When you do a right click on your drive c:\ do you notice an AUTOPLAY option in the menu???? if there might have a virus....try to update and run your antivirus....NOD32 is good at those kind of viruses....

    you did not mention if there is an autoplay in the popup menu when you do the right click....

    assuming there is and as you said you've removed the virus....

    autoplay in the drive exist if a program creates an autorun.inf for them to run when the drive is doulblecliked...this behavior is known to be used by trojan and worm viruses...but some games also do this....but not in your case...

    you can get this kind of viruses from removable drives like flashdrives....which you might have used in other PC's that has it...


    you could try replacing the autorun.inf....

    open notepad and save it as autorun.inf copy this file and paste it to your drive c: when promted to replace autorun.inf click YES then restart your computer...

    get back to me if this doesn't fix it...

Seagate backup plus is beeping and will not pull up on computer??

Troubleshooter: Seagate Manager does not see my Seagate FreeAgent drive Troubleshooting in case the Seagate Manager cannot detect the FreeAgent drive.
Sometimes, Seagate Manager (the software bundled with newer FreeAgent drives) does not see the drive.
This article focuses on drives that can be seen in Windows, but are not seen in the software.
If you are using Windows 8, please note that Seagate Manager is not supported in Windows 8, so you will need to use a different backup solution.

If the drive is not detected in Windows 7/Vista/XP, then use the external drive troubleshooters to try to resolve the non-detection issue.
After connecting the FreeAgent drive, please give it up to 1 minute to display in the middle of the main screen in Seagate Manager.
If the drive does not display, open My Computer (Computer for Vista) and confirm the drive is listed there. The drive should be listed as "FreeAgent Drive". If you have formatted or renamed the drive, then it will show up with the name you provided.
If the drive does not display in My Computer (Computer for Vista), use the External Drive Troubleshooter to help resolve that issue before continuing.
If the drive is detected in Windows, check if the Seagate service is running.
  1. Right-click on the My Computer (Computer for Vista) icon.
  2. Choose Manage.
  3. In the Computer Management window, click Services and Applications.
  4. Open the Services area.

  5. Scroll down the Seagate Service (they are listed alphabetically).
  6. The Seagate service should display Started in the Status column.
    If it does not, right-click on the service and choose START.
  7. If the service reports as Disabled, enable it to start automatically.
    To do this, right-click on the service. A Status Type drop-down menu will appear. Click on the General tab. Select Automatic and click OK.
  8. Reboot the computer.
  9. If the service fails to start after you reboot with these settings, then check the logs of your Antivirus or Antispyware software to confirm they are not restricting the startup of this service, as some aggressive protection programs can prevent services from starting until you approve them. So, you may need to approve this program specifically in the Antivirus/Antispyware software. Please contact your anti-virus software support for help.
  10. If the service will not start or is working already, uninstall the software (for steps on uninstalling the software, see this article).
  11. Once the software is uninstalled, reboot the computer.
  12. Then reinstall the software by opening the InstallSeagateManager.EXE file on the FreeAgent drive. If you have removed the software from the drive, it can be downloaded from the download center.
  13. If the drive is still not seen by the computer, connect the drive to other USB ports on the computer.
    Some eSATA cards block the drive's identity and prevent it from working. Updates have been made to Seagate Manager and to some vendors' eSATA drivers to help this issue. See our eSATA tips article for details.
  14. If the drive still does not display after these steps, please contact Technical Support.
Check Required Windows Component Installations
1. Check to make sure you have the MSXML Parser 6.0 installed:
  • Open Control Panel
  • Open Add/Remove Programs / Programs & Features (Vista)
  • Check box for "Show All Updates"
  • Look for "MSXML Parser 6.0"
If this is not found, visit Microsoft's website to install this component:
2. Make sure Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 installation
  • Open Control Panel
  • Open Add/Remove Programs / Programs & Features (Vista)
  • Check box for "Show All Updates"
  • Look for "Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5".
If this is not found, visit Microsoft's website to install this component. 3. Try the steps listed here.
4. Remove the Seagate folder from C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data (XP) or C:\Program Data folders (Vista) and reboot.
5. Download and install the newest Windows Installer.
6. Download newest Seagate Manager from our Website and re-install a clean copy. Note: Do not do the update when the message pops up saying one is available.

When I open the start buttom the computer does not show all the programes I had previously installed

Hello soiza4242, to find out if the "Programs" exist? do the following:
Click on the "Start button, and open the Control Panel."
Next select in the "Programs" category, [Uninstall a program] applet.
When the window open with the "listings of all the programs installed open; check to see if the ones you mentioned are there?"
If so, then go to the "Taskbar" paul7of9_87.jpg
{Alt / Right} click on a empty area to open the "Properties" shortcut.
Next, click on the Start Menu [button]. paul7of9_90.jpg
Now, click on the [Customize...] button.
In the next 'window,' there will be a "Number of recent programs to display."
View the small box with #s in it, [ 10 > or< with up / down arrows].
To "Display 'more' Programs, click to {+add} arrow up!"
Click on the OK button when finished.
This will show more programs listed in the "Start Menu."
Now? If the "Programs aren't listed in the {Programs and Features}; then they will need to be "Reinstalled!"

If this information helped? Return and give a "Helpful Rating," please!
Thanks, paul7of9

Computer very slow and sluggish. Microsoft office documents open very slowly. General performance slow.

Delete all temp & internet temp files and just check if any AV is scanning in the background. AVG / Kapersky / Mcafee do these background scans silently sometimes. Maybe that is slowing down the pc. Disconnect from lan and internet and try wkg on the pc

Auto restart?

Hi: I agree with the opinion that computers are supposed to be shutdown while we are not working on them... let's see: not only you will spend less energy as your operative system (in this case - Windows XP) will reload all the programs and information needed... and this is a true time save because your computer will run faster... But let's focus on the issue: - if that was provoked by you, don't do it again because each time you do something like that, Windows will accumulate errors... - if the problem is with the software (like you cannot have access to your Windows) you should use the "System Restore" Tool. It's a good tool for domestic computers and the common user If you need more detailed info just post again ;) Regards
