Windows XP Home - My Computer folder going missing

  mar34 15:52 10 Jun 2003

I have recently bought a new computer with Windows XP Home OS. Several times now when I click on My Computer the files are not shown. Instead I get a mainly blank screen with the torch showing its searching for files. The files dont appear. To access my C,D and E drives I have to use my internet browser. At other times I am unable to load up web pages from my browser (IE 6) and have to access web sites through typing the address in google search box which is my home page.

To correct these problems I have to restore to another system point even though I have not installed or changed anything in the meantime. This doesnt always work either.
This is driving me nuts. I hope someone can help.

If you have an XP disk you can use the System File Checker. Start, Run, Type in


and click OK.

If that doesn't work you can try a repair of XP click here
