    When I access the system properties box, then click on the system protection
    tab, it starts to search for available disks. It continues to search
    indefinitely. I'm unable to access any of the features on this tab: system
    restore or create. I've heard this has to do with the new updates. Is this
    true, and is something being done to fix it?

    I don't see that on my system. How many drives do you have and what kind? Is
    there anything else special about your computer?

    I am having the same problem. Have searched Windows Help to no avail. Has
    anybody found any solution at all? Thanks in advance.

    What firewall, anti-virus application or security suite is installed? There
    are some that cause problems which do not appear immediately.

    Hi Bob, I have windows firewall and McAfee that was downloaded from Comcast.
    I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 and it came with Trend Micro PC-cillin which has
    expired. Thanks for your response. Any ideas will help.

    Trend Micro and McAfee are known to cause problems. Sometimes they don’t
    show up immediately.
    Replace McAfee with the free AVG http://free.grisoft.com/ or Avast
    http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.html, and Windows Firewall and Windows
    Defender. Disabling McAfee is not enough. You need to completely uninstall
    it.

    Trend Micro does not have an uninstaller. Uninstall it from "Programs and
    Features"

    Can not uninstall Trend Micro from Programs and Features. Right click does
    nothing. Thinking it may have already been uninstalled, but sure would like
    to get rid of it in programs and features if possible.

    Thanks Bob, but your link refers to XP not Vista. My OS is Windows Vista
    Home Premium.

    Sorry Bob, misread. Guess I was looking for Vista to be the last OS listed.

    No problem. On more than one occasion I've been guilty of not seeing things
    that are right in front of my nose.
