I'm running Windows XP Media Center edition which came with my computer (eMachine) when I bought it 3 years ago. I've never had any trouble accessing my D drive before tonight when I was trying to save a file to it and it said I didn't have enough space on that drive. When I tried to open the D drive from My Computer to see what I could delete to make more space, I get the following message:
Protected by PC Angel
This area of your hard disk
(or partition) contains files used
for your system recovery.
Do not delete or alter these files.
Any change to this partition could
prevent any recovery later.
I've never seen this message before and I've never even heard of PC Angel before today. I did not install this software and I've never seen it before today. I checked under Add/Remove programs and this software isn't listed so I can't uninstall it that way. I checked under C:\Program Files and there's nothing related to PC Angel there. I ran a search on both my C and D drives for any files with PC Angel in their titles and nothing came up. I went to start > run > MSCONFIG > startup and nothing related to PC Angel is there either. How can I get rid of this software so I can access my files on the D drive?? And where the heck did this software come from if I didn't install it and I've never even seen it on my computer before today after 3 years of use??
Thanks in advance.
