Can anyone help I've lost MY COMPUTER and the recycle bin icons in my explorer screens also my dvd is not there either but all is working and are showing in computer management and my network . Can use the dvd drive and write to it with nero. Just wondered why i can't see them anymore
the computer folder is also missing from the start folder options , on the desktop icons the computer and recycle bin cannot be selected their boxes are not highlighted for you to tick the box to add icons to desktop
hi there I believe the HDD , DVD , Recycle Bin have been hidden in the settings somewhere , it is a complete mystery how this has happened have scanned for malware and done a system restore all has remained the same .
Problem solved. After many hours of hair pulling I opened the Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) and changed the status of "Hide these drives" from "Not Configured" to "Disabled" and voila back came the drives in My Computer.
I still have no idea what made them disappear in the first place.
