I don't know, it just says H: DVD drive. That stupid thing keeps saying there's a Sims cd in there when there isn't. O.o

Can you open the H:\ drive like a folder?

yes i can and it has information on in like a cd is in the drive but there isn't a cd!

Here's what's on the drive:

five folders in order - AutoRun, Support, TSBin, TSData, ViTALiTY

Nine other files - AutoRun, autorun.setup, AutoRunGUI.dll, common_filelist, compressed RAR file, eauninstall.app, eauninstall icon, Sims2EP7 shortcut, and Sims2EP7 Uninst.

Please have some patience, my ISP is having problems.

Delete the autorun folder. Smile

Are you able to boot to Safe Mode and delete it there?

I was able to delete it in Safe Mode, thankfully. But my mouse and webcam are still not working. Also, when I restarted from Safe Mode I got the blue screen of death. O.o

See here:

Turn off the automatic reboot. Now when the BSOD happens, the machine wont reboot until you press the reboot/shutdown button.

Now, can you tell me what it says?
