    Hiya...

    I have two hard drives C, and D. When I open either of these drives right click on a folder and select properties nothing happens at all. When I go to properties of the C or D drives themself, nothing happen.

    When I go to the properties of a network computer, any file with an extension, shortcuts etc.. the properties come up.

    Whats going on?

    Thanks in advance

    What OS are you running?

    Also what is the file allocation format are the drives?

    i.e., FAT, FAT32, or NTFS

    I have Rebooted, Shut down let it sit a min.

    Running Service Pack two as a Domain Controller.

    Checked for Group policies, and Security polcies none seem to be in effect also, if that helps.

    Windows 2000 Server, I am not really sure. But if you go into Disk Manager does it show the properties of the drives? If I think of anything or find something about it I will let you know. Of course someone else may reply with an answer.

    Man, that's too bad. You could try a reinstall to refresh the Windows files, which will not require you to reinstall your apps. But you will have to reapply the service packs.

    *sighs* after much work and trying many things I am still no closer to a solution. I reinstalled Windows and it didnt do a thing :(

    Any more suggestions would be greatly appreciated....

    Im not sure if this is related but in my Event Viewer the following errors occur:

    Type: Error Event ID: 7022 Source: Service Control Manager

    The World Wide Web Publishing Service service hung on starting.
    The Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP) service hung on starting.
    The Site Server ILS Service service hung on starting.

    I looked up the error code, and it told me that there is a problem related to this, although no more errors have occured but those three.

    Did you do a recent windows update or an update just before you started having trouble?

    I posted a similar problem on April 9. No success yet, but I haven't tried a re-install, though I now expect that even that won't do it...

    Try looking at your priveleges on the drives or even your accounts. You might not have access to change things. make sure you are an administrator.
