I got my new MY Book Elite 2TB, installed S/W, back up my hardrives on my PC (Windows XP), and all was good. A couple of days later when I started my PC and once windows start up completes every thing looks fine until I try to start IE or any other application. Nothing runs. I can’t even launch the task Manager. Wait fo 15 minutes … still the same.
So I unplug the My Book Elite and reboot. Afte rwindows starts up, still IE or nothing else starts. Now I can run task Manager, and I can see iexplorer processes running. So I END all WD*.exe processes and voila, IE starts up and everything is fine. I can use my PC again.
Has anyone else seen this? I paid a lot for this drive and I’m not happy that the rest of my system hangs and I can’t do anything until I kill the processes.
