    Hi, and thank you for being here.

    I did a system restore on my laptop after recklessly cleaning files off of my hard drive. Since then I can't access my d:/, so I can't reinstall anything, including my internet and Microsoft Office software.

    If I look in the control panel I can see everything (I didn't lose any personal files), but D: always comes up as D:/RECOVERY, then fiendishly warns me not to look inside (which I haven't).

    Please help.

    Welcome to TSG....

    Where is the recovery disk? Did you put it in the D:\ Drive? I suggest that you look inside the drive even though the computer says not too.

    Actually, I have 21 recovery disks that my computer had me create right after I got it. Both the control panel and run won't even let me see the programs that are in D:/RECOVERY. It just gives me the flashy warning and that's as far as I can get. It will not recognize anything that I try to run from that drive. Frustrating!

    Looking forward to your reply - I'm so glad to have you all here.
