For the drive; open a cmdprompt (or Run) and type - "regsvr32 /i shell32.dll" (without the quotes)

Hi sorry got it to work and it says it succeeded.
But still cant view drives i still get a long list of programs and it asks me which one i want to open it with .
The only way i can get to look into the C and D drive is right click on start and explore and get to the files that way at the moment .

If you have an original install CD for windows - not a recovery CD you can do a repair install. This should fix the problem.

You can find instructions for this by doing a Google search.

Hi trace,

Have you resolved this yet?
You recently have a virus/malware on the system?
You wrote about malware your antivirus was finding here:

http://spywarewarrior.com/viewtopic.php?t=27800&highlight=

To which MysteryFCM replied.
I highly suggest you do the instructions laid out in the Hijackthis forum and post a log in that forum.

It is malware or leftovers of malware causing your drive issues.
There would be a couple logs a helper would need to look at to pinpoint the problem.

Good idea also to point your helper to this thread so they can see what issues you desribe having.

Regards,

Blender
