Win7 64bit Home Premium - My Computer Drive Labels "static"

I had to recover my PC after a virus, got everything back up and running w/ some help from this forum.

What I noticed now is that some of My Computer drive labels are now static, before they would only appear what I plugged in a usb device or flash card into my built in reader.

So far I have went into folder and search options and uncheked the show hidden files and folders and checked off to hide them w/ no luck.


See pix, circled drives never showed up before unluess I had somthing plugged in:

Do these "drives" appear in the disk management page - start, right click my computer, manage, disk management. ?

Under "Folder Options" Open the View tab In the options list, locate the line "Hide empty drives in the computer" If the box is checked, readers will no longer appear empty in the explorer, If the box is unchecked, Windows 7 will behave like XP and Vista and will show all drives.

You also have to have "hide hidden folders and drives" checked
