I had a really bad virus. It disabled right click, regedit, messed up my desktop, deleted everything from the start menu, changed all my display settings, and slowed down my computer a great deal.

I have mostly recovered from it except for one little thing that is bugging me. When i go to my computer i cant see my HDD, or C drive.
I can get to it by C:/ in the address bar and such, but it wont show up in my computer. some programs i try to install make you chose a place to save the file, but it wont let me type the directory so i have to choose with from a list of folders. This cant be done if i cant see the C drive.

Anyone know what exactly i can do to fix this. I have tried regedit, folder options, device manager, etc.

Any ideas?

Did you try going through Windows Explorer?

It is under Accessories in your Start Menu.

Try it, if it works put a short cut to it on your Desktop.

Download and install TweakUI (the download is on the right hand side of the screen). Run TweakUI and then click on My Computer > Drives and place a check next to the drives you want to unhide.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
