    Odd one. Had a virus on a customer's computer. Found it, cleaned it, no problem. Now when I go to My Computer and double click a drive nothing happens. I can't right click or left click, but if I highlight the drive and then go: File, Open.... it opens to display the folders on the drive. And to open a folder, I must do the same thing. Same goes for the Control Panel. I must highlight an icon (Display, System, Users, etc.) and then go File..Open to get the app open. If I boot up in Safe Mode, everything works fine. It's like I can't browse locally. If I double click an icon on the Desktop everything works fine. Damn thing is driving me crazy. Also ran a repair with the Windows 2000 disk. No help.
