    When i open up my computer and then I have the drives there. It seems that the C drive icon is gone. When I double click it, it just asks what i want to open rather than actually opening C drive. But when I go to RIGHT CLICK>OPEN it opens. Any idea what this is?

    When was the last time you reinstalled your operating system? Has it been more than 2 years?

    When weird things start happening like this sometimes it is easier, and more beneficial to just reformat and start over.

    antivirus software is just as bad as a virus.
