Suddenly desktop software started denying that my Curve 8520 was connected.(It was fine the day before).
I tried a reinstall, which seemed to be working, but it made no difference.
Windows 7 could see it. The driver installed The usual USB connection sound happened, but the software just wouldn't admit that I was connected.
I ran all the checks, including trying a different Curve, cable, USB point.
The other Curve couldn't connect either/
I tried all the suggested fixes (e.g. USB power setting, fire wall).
I tried a system restore to when it was working.
I tried installing from the (" hidden" ) admin user. Nothing.
I looked at the website and as suggested went to the software version that was listed for my carrier (5.x, I had been on 6.x) and clean installed that. It seemd to instal fine, but then didn't appear on my computer at all.
Windows uninstaller has it listed, but the actual program files aren't there in c:\program files and don't appear in a search.
So now I have no desktop manager at all.

What do i do?
