Cannot access My Computer

  Newuser3605 22:03 09 Jan 2010


Everything else seems to be working ok.
When I click on My Computer all I get is a moving torch. This means that I cannot access Programs ( I think).

Has anyone any ideas? Many thanks.

If you go to Control Panel : System do you get the same problem?

Thanks ame.

No. It goes there without any problem and works immediately on everything clicked.

Sorry - was thinking of right click on My Computer

If you're using Xp, this may be of use:- click here

If you've installed or deleted some hardware/software/system files just before this happened, you can try System Restore.

Similar help here click here if System Restore doesn't work. Be careful, though.

Many thanks for all the advice.
I checked on the sites and followed the advice to disonnect my scanner. This worked. Strange though.
It's a big relief and the solution would not even be considered if it had not been suggested.
