Opening My Computer in WinXP-Pro/SP3 can result two possible presentations : dDouble clicking My Computer tends to open it with the left pane being headed by System Tasks, whereas Win E tends to show the pane with Folders.
The steps of my macro to automate the launching of a checkdisk, requires there be no ambiguity. Is there a way of ensuring that Win E ALWAYS results in only the ONE (whichever) view being presented ?

I'm sorry if I'm not understanding your actions correctly, but you seem to be describing two different actions - if your macro uses Win E (start Windows Explorer) I'm not sure why the My Computer action being different is a problem.

Edit: is there a reason not to automate just running the chkdsk program?
