Purchased a WD portable essential 2 days ago. As WD has a good name I thought there wouldn’t be any problems.
Before I connected it I did as always, I ran a virus scan and a spyware scan. I then followed all instructions about downloading software etc and low and behold found it all very easy.
Started saving files to the drive when all of a sudden my computer slowed down. Now it has slowed so much it is taking 3 minutes to load a page. I performed another spyware scan and the results alerted me to 46 threats.
My computer also brings a message up that I have a corrupt file which is unreadable in the directory.
As I’m not a computer expert, could someone please advise how to fix this corupted file and also remove the software.
I’m extremely disappointed with WD to say the least.
