What do you mean you can't open files or folders? Are you saying the files or folders are not on the hard drive since it's blank? I think you've got a virus that has hidden your files and folders?

I'm not sure which operating system you have but you need to get to Folder Options.

In Windows XP you can click Start/My Computer. When My Computer Opens click Tools at the top of the window and then select Folder Options. When the Folder Options window opens, click the View Tab and scroll down and select Show All Hidden Files And Folders. Click OK then go click on your C: Local Drive and see if your folders and files are there. Hidden Folders will show up lighter than a normal folder.

Regarding slow speed


The setting for opening in the same window is when you are in a folder and you go to Tools/Folder Options. From there, the 2nd setting should be set to Open Each Folder In The Same Window. Next go to the 2nd tab and click Apply To All Folders.

Finally, the increase the overall performance of your drives and system in general, I would suggest running Disk Defragmenter. Actually, I would suggest running it 3 times in a row to make sure your files are fully compacted and defragmented.

You can find instructions on how to run that program HERE.

Hi

Sounds like you have 'autoplay' turned off, but it should be easy to get the CD installation program to run.

Double click on 'My Computer' and then probably your 'D' drive will be your CD or DVD drive. Double click on that and it will probably start automatically. If it doesn't start automatically it will open the CD folder, then look for a file called something like... 'setup.exe' or something like that. I don't have your CD so I don't know what it is called exactly sorry.

Hope this helps.
