Hello billybellfoot and welcome to the forums :party:

Open your start menu, in the search box put SystemPropertiesProtection.exe and click on it. What does it say for the enabled status of your hard drives?

Hi Billtybellfoot, just to add, If you have norton security or security system which has tamper protection you have to go into setting's and untick that box that say's tamper protection.
