Well, after frigging around, I deleted the partition and now have one local disk (C:/) that everthing gets copied to. I created a restore point so I have a failsafe...I'll make another as soon as I get EVERYTHING set to my specifications. I think I'm back on track.
Thanks to all the input from you guys. Glad I'm not the only one that has experienced this.
EDIT: ps Adaware and Spybot generall cause more problems than they fix, they are spyware themselves. Use Windows Defender.
