Lost CD drive and icons +.....???

  dezi 17:46 07 May 2005

After a rather long session yesterday which included changing a few filenames and extensions of (.pdf .jpg .txt .wps)some major problems have come up which I cannot correct. Among many attempts including complete virus check and restore, I have had no luck.

1. My CD drive was name was "Q", it has disappeared from 'My Computer' list. I can no longer access it, it still lights up on booting.

2. I cannot create shortcuts to my desktop now or save by drag and drop.

3. Only about half of my Control Panel icons will activate, and in Start...RUN SEARCH and HELP don't work.

any suggestions / help is appreciated.

have you tried booting up in safe mode, and trying a system restore, or trying "last known good configuration", this is assuming it is XP you,re running.?
