Well I got rid of the qttask.exe. I also took out all the usb wires and put them back in one at a time. The only one that didn't show up was the Bytecc external HD. I changed out cords and put in different ports and still nuthin'. I guess the HD is fried.
Thanks for your help, I'll be getting another external drive.
