    My CPU will only open in sys 32 please help thks alot
    « on: December 30, 2008, 11:13:19 AM »
    I opened an email today that I thought was from a buyer for something I had on CL but to my mistake. I think it was a virus that will not let me open my cpu and only open the sys 32 file/folder.  Because before that I was in the C drive folder and now only sys 32. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      I click on my cpu icon to open my folders, the drives will come up and I click on c drive and the only folder it will let me open is system 32 well it actually opens it auto. I can right click on c drive and hit open and it works fine but kinda annoying. same for my extra hard drive when I click on that it says "windows cannot find ""r" make sure you typed it correctly and try again. But i can right click and open it manually????? thks

      I assume, you double click on "My Computer", correct?
      What happens, when you click on "+" sign, next to C drive?

        no plus sign next to my c drive or any of the drives using windows xp, I was wondering if I checked something by acccident and locked myself out of the files, possible?

        the plus sign would be in the Folders Explorer bar:

        view->Explorer bar->Folders

        No plus signs in that pane beside drives?
        I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.
