Like the OP in that thread, can you explain what exactly you are trying to do?

Sure, I've downloaded an iso file. When I double click it, it mounts as Drive J: and I can use it as if it were an optical drive.
The problem is, it may be pirate software as Windows has decided "This Computer is not running genuine Windows". Or I think that's what has happened. I've run the "resolve Online now" link for over 48 hours and it's done nothing. If I can remove it, I can prove if it's that or not. Rebooting has no effect, it's still there.
Thanks for any assistance.

You should be able to unmount it with this: Mount or dismount a drive - Windows Help

Or this: SlySoft Virtual CloneDrive

If you are receiving Windows not genuine error, check to see if you have this update installed: KB3004394

When you get to "Installed Updates" search for the update I mentioned above. If you have it, uninstall it and call Microsoft to re-activate Windows.

Hello Kirkm,

You should be able to right click on the drive (mounted ISO) in "This PC", and click on "Eject" to remove it.

Ah, thanks very much guys, Brink I had removed it before I seen your msg but will remember that. Gater - 100% success. I'd been to Disk management many times without seeing "Remove". Not sure how to confirm if I have KB3004394installed. I typed it into the search dialog but nothing came up. BTW it is a genuine Win7 and I have MSE installed and usually say Yes to any updates that aren't automatic.

Gator, I have found KB3004394 in the history Status successful Date Dec 11.
Shall I wait and see if the problem is fixed before trying to uninstall it, ring MS etc. ?

The update is bad so it can be uninstalled either way. If you no longer have Windows Genuine errors there is no need to call Microsoft.
