    Hi Jin~

    1. What happens when he opens Explorer?..............nothing? an error message? What I am asking is is the problem that Explorer is screwed up, or has he just lost some data/applications?

    2. Have you tried it in safe mode?

    3. Look in the recycle bin..................you know what users are like

    4. <start> <run> winfile

    That is the old DOS file manager that ships with Windows up to ME. It should let you check what is actually there. Some malware will disable explorer but most forget winfile.exe

    You should get an updated AV and run that in safe mode

    Good luck

    In Windows 2000 you can enable or disable the Folders list by selecting View|Explorer bar|Folders. (Or the Folders button on the buttonbar.)
    I assume you have tried that already. In that case, your <edit>Windows installation</edit> is damaged. (If not, oops.) Just checking...

    When you say explorer tree is missing, is the right click on start then click explore???????????


    This can be caused by sellecting multiple drives within TweekUI. Open tweekui, look at the drive seek tab? sorry it's been a long time since i messed with 98, not sure where it is. But within this tab there is a list of possible drives, if there are multiple drives in the list that are checked uncheck them. This will cure the problem.

    Open a Dos prompt and experiment with command line options
    to see if you can get it to open properly. You may have inadvertently
    changed something in a menu, but you may need to research
    registry settings to put it back right.
