Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
After installing Norton 360 on my PC (running XP SP1) in late January 2008, I discovered that I could no longer see my boot drive letter designation in Windows Explorer, although the drive itself is still visible in Device Manager. (I have two additional internal hard drives, both of which are visible.)
And I can't reassign a letter, because it's the boot drive.
Not sure if this is a serious problem, but am uncomfortable with the problem.
Should I consider a workaround, like installing XP on one of the two other hard drives, booting from that drive (through BIOS), and then reassign a letter to the old boot drive, the (again through BIOS) reset the boot drive to the-once-old-and-new-again boot drive.
Or is this just too convoluted.
I'd appreciate your thoughts.
I am not a fan of Norton, but, I would uninstall Norton 360, see if the drive letter comes back. If that works you can try to re-install your Norton, and if it happens again, use a different anti-virus.
