New guy on the block, but seeking help with XP SP3!
1- When I click on 'Safely Remove Hardware' all the partitions on my 3 hard drives (128GB SSD and two 1TB Barracudas) plus my DVD drive, show as 'removable drives', exactly like my USB stick:
2- In addition, they are all listed in the 'Send to' menu (which takes 5 seconds to display the list):
3- clicking on the 'Start' button, the entire top section remains blank for 5 seconds (presumably checking round all the partitions for the apps listed there?)
Any ideas on what is wrong and how to correct it would be gratefully received!
