I click on Control Panel and nothing happens. I get the hour glass for 1/2 second and that's it!

I try to open my recycle bin & everything on my desktop disappears and comes back about 3 seconds later!

ANY of my programs having to do with c:/ I can't open.. my documents, my pictures.. my music.. NOTHING!

I've run spyware, antivirus, registry cleaners and I can't fix it.

Could someone please help me?

I'm desperate! :thumbsup:

Have you tried running chkdsk /r or checkdisk from the Graphical Version?

XP Chkdsk, Using the Graphical Version (My Computer) - http://www.updatexp.com/windows-xp-chkdsk.html Put checks in both options, scan and recover.

Have you defragged the system lately?

In my experience...when things start disappearing, it can be faulty connections, hard drive problems, malware, or something else totally unexpected (in addition to file problems). The 2 steps above will deal with file problems and some disk problems.
