ok, this is really wierd. I had no problems with my system untill about 30mins ago. I was going to redo my active desktop for the dec screenshot thread as I haven't done so in a while. Sounds harmless enough right? Well not so. I decided to redo my entire active desktop script and code and start from scratch, so I did just that. Removed all the code and saved the changes to start with a clean slate t owork from. Next I wanted to look through my files of wallpapers to choose a new one. so I click on "my computer" icon to access one of my partitions that I have that stored on. And guess what? My drives are no longer listed. No drive Icons, nothing but 2 folders, Shared Documents, and My Documents". That is it! Now I can type in c: to get to my C: partition and D: for that one, but I no longer have any icon's in my computer for these. Now this happen right after I saved the changes to my active desktop. Nothing else was done. So I run virus scan, (nothing), ad-aware 6, (nothing), Hi-jack this, (nothing unusal). So I say ok, I will jsut perform a restore. None of my restore points work. It will go through the motions but after the reboot it says the restore failed. I have tried ALL the restore points available and I get the same thing. Now when I do a restore point (usually 2x a month) I also make a backup of my registry. So I import the registry backup, and still the problem exists. I don't know what to do. Anyone have this happen to them? Any ideas on how I can fix this? The only thing I don't have a backup of is my active desktop file Attached is a screen shot of "my comp"
