    Greetings,

    Windows Explorer in 2000 Pro does not list my hard drives as of this morning.
    No new software has been installed in past 5 days and this occured after I rebooted this morning. All other functions seem to be OK. Any clues would be appreciated!

    What does it display? Try right clicking the Start button and choosing "Explore". What do you see?

    Hi Stod and thanks for the help before hand.
    When I explore from My Computer it shows folders on desktop, My Computer, Recycle Bin. It does not show the C,D,E,F,G,H, or I (2 drives partioned) nor does it show my CDROM or DVDROM drives. In the Second pane it shows the flashlight moving as if it is searching for drives in question. Occasionaly when I reboot it will show all drives properly. Now most functions seem OK as I am using the "hurt" PC right now. The same action occurs when I explore from the Start button, but it at least shows the directory tree on down to Start Menu in Documents and Settings folder. I tried reinstalling SP4 hoping that might help, but no luck.
