    Win XP Pro SP2
    Vundo, Vundo Variants & Rootkit have been cleaned

    My Computer no longer displays C: & D:
    Control properties [ right click desktop ] & control panel are not accessible
    "your system administrator disabled the display control panel"

    I am able to access the registry.

    I am able to access "run" & task manager.

    I look forward to your advice.

    RIGHT click properties are intact.

    However, from right clicking on the desktop, I am unable to access display properties.

    Thanks anyway.

    Solved it differently.

    Yes, I am aware of search engines.

    My primary concern was that the C: and D: did not appear in "my computer".

    Sincerely,
