Angry Windows Explorer/My Computer folder empty
This is my first question as a "Newbie".

I have read other users problems similar to mine but not exactly the same.

When clicking on the 'My Computer' icon on the desktop, the folder sometimes opens with 'zero' objects found, ie. no c drive, a drive, d drive or control panel. My system then freezes/hangs and the only way to close is to ctrl-alt-del.

I then notice that my mouse icon has disappeared from the task bar but the mouse still functions OK but I can cannot access any programs or close down/restart the conventional way requiring me to hit the restart button on the tower.

Any suggestions or am I just rehashing old problems that those other people have had.

I am very tempted to lash out and install XP Home and that is also another question, considering all these problems with ME would a full install be better than a upgrade.

Thanks

Hi seajay4

I don't see any evidence of a virus - But please go here and do an on-line scan for viruses :-

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

There is evidence of programs which contain spyware so

Please Download and install SpyBot,

http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/spybot11r3.exe

click the online tab to search for and download the updates, then shut down and relaunch SpyBot.

Go to the Settings tab > File Sets, and uncheck 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' .
These aren't needed for our present purpose, and you can always experiment with them later on.

Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, click 'Check for problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds 'Fix selected problems'

This may not solve your problem but at least it will rule out certain possibilities

Hi Steamwiz


I downloaded spybot and did a online virus check but unfortunatley my system froze at 50,000 files of 103,000 but it hadn't found any virus by then, I will try to repeat this process again. Spybot didn't find any serious spy programs just so I got rid of what it suggested, however I did have a play around with those settings that you suggested I uncheck for the first scan and they have found something that is interesting I think!!

They show some missing registry files (shared files) and I am wondering if they are the problem. Am posting them here to see what you or anybody else thinks.

Thanks in advance

Seajay4

Hi seajay4

I don't know if any of the missing shared .dll's have anything to do with your problems - all I can say is that if I tick 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' in spybot, then it comes up with missing shared .dll's on my system as well

I don't know what else to advise - I hope someone else can step in to help you

Would running SFC maybe help with this situation? Or Internet explorer repair?

I too checked out spybot and found several missing links and shared dlls. My understanding of this program is that these found items no longer work and I went ahead and checked them all and removed them. (Not advising that you do the same, wait for a more experienced techs input.) If I have problems within the next few days I will just restore a previous registry but I don't anticipate any problems.

I was prompted at each item to make sure that I wanted to delete the key from the registry. If anyone else takes this route it is much quicker to use the enter key verses the mouse. I will report back in a few days and let you know if I encounted any problems.

Good Luck

At first I didn't know that I may have created problems by doing this but now I am having a problem. When I go to shut down I get a system error "Windows can not read from drive E:. If this is a network drive make sure the network is working. If it is a local drive, check the disk.

(note --during shutdown it is actually checking a: when the error appears)

there are three options:

Cancel Abort Retry

Only abort will respond and then I get a box that says.

System error

Warning! You will lose any information that you entered since your last save and you may not be able to restart the program. Are you sure you want to abort this program?

Yes No


I click the yes box that appears and it proceeds. Even though I select shutdown it restarts instead.

The same error message comes up if I make changes in MSconfig once I make changes then apply as soon as I hit the OK key the error appears. Any suggestions? I will wait till tomorrow and if this doesn't get sorted out I'll try an earlier registry.

I have already tried scanreg /fix. No luck there.

As I work very early I'll check back tomorrow.

Thanks for any suggestions

one final note -----my wife has been having trouble accessing F: with some of her program disks so she resorts to E:

jm100dm,

Hi. It would be best to troubleshoot your problem in a separate thread. Things get confusing when trying to help more than one person at a time. However, if your problem started after you used Spybot, click the Recovery Icon in the left pane and restore the backup.

Also, do not wait to do a scanreg /restore if the Spybot restore doesn't help.

You only have 4 or 5 saved registries. And usually restoring the oldest fails unless you make some changes before you try the restore. Do it now before you miss your chance.

How long have you been having this problem?
If it is fairly recent, you might try Start > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore and restore to when it worked right.
