the phone number sounds like a tech number for you to call for a repair service.

If your running XP or ME, do a system restore.

Can't run a system restore , i get the same message. WINDOWS CANNOT FIND C:\whatever?
Only the internet works

Only the internet works in order for your internet to work windows has to work. have you by any chance partitioned your hard drive? "windows cannot find C:\ whatever" so windows is working then. whats the betting windows is now on D:

Tweak XP or a reg edit can resolve installtion dir.

I don't have D drive only C

It started when I ran Diskkeeper. I got a message explore.exe < small box on screen.

Then I ran trend housecall antivirus this found 29 virus's I deleted 27. two remain but apparently they are harmless.

The Internet is fine but it can't find the path to anything else.
I don't really want to format if I can help it

I can go into my computer and open the the folders no problem. I just don't seem to be able to access any files at all.

I just get the message Cannot find C:\program files\ whatever.

So far as I can tell only the internet works and any folders with pictures are ok. I can view pictures no problem.

C:\Program Files\Sage\Accounts

This is what shows in the top when I go into my computer and open up the filest

Try the system file checker:




You will need the OS CD.

A reinstall may be the next step.

When you're in My Computer have you tried double clicking on the exe file within the program folder itself..not the shortcut..if that runs the prog try deleting the old shortcut and creating a new one...if thats not the case try reinstalling the prog over itself

This is the problem. I can't run anything at all. I even downloaded a registry repair program.

It dowloaded fine, but when you try to run the program it say it can't find it.
And I just downloaded it and I can see it on my C: drive
