I know this will sound silly, but "My Computer" has disappeared! I know it's somewhere, but I have no icon and it's not in the start menu. I'm so tired of looking for it! (I'm gonna kill that kid for messin' with my computer!) Please tell me how to find it so I can run disk check! Thanks.

I found it!! BUT I got a black screen and it says "WARNING! F Parameter is not specified. Running CHKDSK in read-only mode." What on earth does that mean?

It means that in order to fix anything, the F parameter has to be specified. You can run it from the Start -> Run by typing in:

chkdsk /f

. . . and hit OK.

Have you tried opening an Explorer window using the Windows Key and the E key? Mine automatically opens to "My Computer."

You can also restore functionality by importing the registry key from Kelly's Korner:

Scroll down to line 207, use the script on the right. Right-click on it and choose "save as." Make sure it is set to save it to the desktop using the pull-down arrow. IT should now appear as a reg key on your desktop (like a Rubic's cube, sorta). Double-click on it and answer "yes" to import it into the registry. Restart the computer and see if your My Computer is back.
