Post a Screen Shot of My Computer, and also of Disk Management in Computer management, which is under Administrative tools.  You need to do all of this through the desktop, not through Metro.  Also what third party "Internet Security" software are you running?

The C: drive usually contains the operating system.

 

There is an alternative to making a screen shot, use the Snipping Tool.

 

Please use the Snipping Tool to copy the image.
 
Go to Search and type in Snipping Tool.  It will show in the pane to the left, click on it.  
 
After you have the image you will want to go to File and click on Save As, Pictures will open with this image, when it opens give it a name and click on save .
 
Using the Snipping Tool to copy an image. 
 
You can find this tool in Accessories under All Programs.  To use this have the image you want to copy on the desktop, click on Snipping Tool.  A small white cross (+) will appear on the screen, move this to the lower left corner of the image you want to copy, press and hold the mouse and slowly move it to the right and upwards.  You will see a red rectangle form around the image, when you have the image isolated that you want, release the mouse.  After you have the image you will go to File and click on Save As, Pictures will open with this image, when it opens give it a name then click on Save.    
 
You can post this image in your next post.  Just below the area where you write text in a post there is the Post button, to the right of this is More Reply Options

You need to start your own topic in order to get help.  This topic is six months old and the likelihood that another member is going to read this is not going to be good.  The only reason I saw this is because I had posted in this topic which means that when someone else posts in it I receive an e-mail letting me know.
