Can spyware effect my DVD ROM? I know I am infected, but would that cause my DVD Drive not to work? I can read CD's but it will not read DVD's, I can put a dvd in the drive but it only reads it as a cd, I know the DVD is in good shape because it plays on another computer just fine. I also read somewhere to delete the upper and lower filters in the registry and that would fix it, but I done that and had no luck, I've even tried a new dvd drive and the same thing happened. If you have any suggestions please let me know. Thanks!

Hi there -

Spyware generally can affect the operation of your OS & software programs; hence it may be affecting your DVD player software and that is why it is not reading it as a DVD.

You say you know that you are infected with spyware? I think it is important for you to get your security issues cleared up, then it would be easier to diagnose the DVD drive.

Take a look at the recommended help tools to get your system in tip-top shape.

Good luck. :)

Ok, thank you. I think it would just be better for me to reinstall Windows and see if everything will work from there. Thanks for your help.
