1. Click Start, type regedit and press ENTER.

2. Navigate to the following key:


3. Right click the {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} entry, choose "Export", select Desktop in the Save in box and type backup in File Name. Click Save.

Please Note: The backup file is on the Desktop and named backup.reg. We can simply restore the registry by double-clicking the backup.reg file.

4. Highlight this key ({4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}), on the right pane, and then check if Upperfilters and Lowerfilters value are present. If so, please right click on the values and select "Delete" to remove them.

5. Restart the computer.

there is no Upper or Lower filters on my machine ..... besides, that key deals with a cdrom device from what I see.

Hi there, my name is***** tends to read from NFS OK, but has some problems writing to it. Can you use Samba instead? You shouldn't have any issues with SMB instead of NFS.
