Error message: Windows cannot access the specified device, path, o
I recently started getting an error message stating that "WINDOWS CANNOT
ACCESS THE SPECIFIED DEVICE, PATH, OR FILE. YOU MAY NOT HAVE THE APPROPRIATE
PERMISSIONS TO ACCESS THE ITEM", whenever I double click on my cd rom
drives. If I right click on the drive icon and click EXPLORE, I can access
the files on any disc in the drive. If I go into safe mode, I don't get the
error message. I am currently running Windows Vista Home Premium and I am an
administrator. UAC is off. I am not sure if it has anything to do with it,
but I recently uninstalled AVAST antivirus software. If anyone has any
suggestions, please let me know.

Thanks.

BillD,

Enabling UAC didn't change anything. If you have any other suggestions, I'm
open to them.

Thanks.
