ANYONE that recognizes these symptons please help me IDENTIFY this issue! I plugged a friends Seagate Expansion drive (SRD00F1) into my machine's usb port, Windows Vista started to load the drivers and then says success. I went to My Computer and the machine can't see the drive. After this I started to see the following occurring: 1) Explorer shows no filenames or folder names. If I click on the file to rename, the name is there, but when I close that, the name disappears. 2) All the normal column names in Explorer details view are gone, "Author" is the only one showing. All of the common ones are unavailable when I try to choose details by right clicking the column header, Filename, Size, Date Created/Accessed/Modified etc... 3) Many windows won't open, specifically Control Panel windows like "Backup and Restore Center", System, regedit.exe. 4) The "Start Search" feature of the Start Bar returns nothing. I found out later, No searches work. 5) In My computer the sizes of the drives and free space are in bytes, not KB or MB. I've done a complete Virus scanning ticket with Broni: http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/unknown-rootkit-infection-explorer-modified.208251/ I've tried running SFC many times, SFC says errors fixed, but the CBS.log is repeating the same errors every time. Any assistance on identifying this issue would be greatly appreciated.
