Hey, my problem is quite strange, I couldn't find any solution and trust me, I tried I suddenly lost all stuff from my desktop and can't relaly access my hard drives - mostly C:. I can run stuff from taskbar, also I can run some stuff from D: drive (although for example I had to go to safe mode to run Malbytes Anti-Malware, but I could run battle.net without any problems), I can't even open C: drive - when I do that it says there are no items, and after a while the explorer stops responding. I scanned the computer already (with Malbytes and also SuperAntiSpyware + antivirus), there was no malware in a sense of harmful ones (I mean it found some but it was mostly stuff that I know of and is not really a malware). Also, right now weird thing happened because I literally didn't do anything, I was writing this post and I minimized my stuff and all of my desktop items were there, I tried to check if it magically fixed but when I tried to open C: drive it got stuck like always and after closing the explorer desktop icons were gone again.
So quick summary:
- I can navigate through MOST of D: drive without troubles (entering My Computer, clicking D: works just fine)
- I CAN'T enter drive C: through My Computer and just left clicking on C:
- I CAN'T right click ANY drive in My Computer nor ANY folder inside the drives
- I can get to let's say C:\Program Files by writing the path and navigate there easily
- I CAN'T load large folders (like Diablo III folder or any other "heavy" game)
What I think MIGHT be the reason - I had error 1303 and I changed the permissions in C:\ProgramData (http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-security/error-1303-account-with-full-administrator-rights/d9141f1a-1ea0-4121-b7fb-e2b9659e31e3 - this was the source I belive). I guess that probably is the reason, but I forgot to create a restore point, so if that could be the case is there any way to change this? I can't access C:\ProgramData poperties by right clicking to change it since it doesn't work anywhere on any drive.
I would appreciate any help, thanks in advance!
EDIT: I was just watching something on my 2nd display and desktop icons came back by itself at some point, if that's any help.
