Windows XP Home edition. Got the Fake "Windows" threat detection bug. Rkill then Malwarebytes then Combofix finally got it. Can't access files on only one drive. All other drives have their content accessible. This one drive shows to have contents when clicking on properties but will not open when clicking on a specific folder in the drive. Just blank. But again will show the folder/file to have something under properties. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

O.K. I found if I go to TOOLS>Folder Options - View - "show hidden files and folders" I can see them but they are like ghost files that I can open. They are not normal in appearance. So there is still something awry. I will keep hacking at it. If someone else has anything to offer...Thanks again.

Please post a screen shot from Disk Management.

Start/Run...type diskmgmt.msc and hit Enter.
