Windows Explorer not showing C: drive root

By bldsm ·
I have a 2 yr old Win XP PC P4 and when I open Windows Explorer and try and find the C: drive (the main drive) the icon showing it's looking thru folders comes up and never stops looking. I can see My Documents and anything but the C: drive. If I go thru RUN I can see it but not using windows explorer.

How can I fix this annoying problem?
Is it something to do with paging or ram?

Thanks
Bruce

Hi

Have you tried opening Disk Management and seeing if the computer correctly recognises the drive? Have drive letters been reassigned? Also, have you tried running CHKDSK? What happens if you type C: in the Run dialog box, then click OK. If it shows your C: drive, can you go up one level?

I would also run a third party disk diagnostic tool and a registry checker. Finally, try running SFC /scannow.

Good luck

Check for a file called autorun.inf and delete it!
