Hey Guys,
My friend recently purchased a used Sony Vaio laptop that runs Windows Vista. It had a bunch of crap (mostly useless programs) so I said I'd try to help him clean it up, although I really don't know much about it as I haven't had the need or want to upgrade from XP. We were going through and uninstalling some programs, and about 1 in 5 would pop up saying Error 1327: Cannot find drive G:\. Sadly, the laptop didn't come with the manual so we couldn't look up what that meant. As far as I can tell, there isn't a drive G anywhere on that computer. Also, it didn't seem like there was any pattern in what programs gave this error when uninstalling.

If you guys know how to fix this problem that would be great. If all else fails I guess we'll just wipe the hard drive and re-install vista or maybe get Win 7.

✔ Best Answer
"Sony Vaio laptop"
EXACT model please.

We should be able to clean Vista up, probably the error is due to an imrpoper removal of an USB device.

Run these in this order.

Wise Disk Cleaner ( Run the 1st three tabs, left to right. I use default settings, leave boxes that are unchecked, unchecked ) Reboot when finished.

Wise Registry Cleaner ( Only use Registry Cleaner & with default settings. Don't use System Tuneup, that is for Experts, you really have to know what you are doing ) Reboot when finished.

Drive G: was probably an external drive that wasn't included when your friend got the laptop. It's likely some software was originally installed from (or to) that drive and the uninstall procedure is looking for files there.

Revo Uninstaller is another one of the tools used to remove stubborn software:

Either that or you've got software running in the background that is expecting a G: drive and periodically checks to see if it's there.
