Whenever I try to open the Computer Management folder in my Administrative tools I get the following 2 messages.

Snap-in failed to initialize.
Name: Removable Storage Extension
CLSID:{243E20B0-48ED-11D2-97DA-00A024D77700]

Snap-in failed to initialize.
Name: Disk Management Extension
CLSID:{8EAD3A12-B2C1-11D0-83AA-00A0C92C9D5D}


I have tried everything (microsoft site, re-download and re registered dll's etc etc) but nothing works. The only thing that shows up under the storage tab is Disk Defragmenter and I need to get into Disk Management.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Go to start>run. Type in sfc /scannow. Have your XP disk handy, in case it asks for it.
This will scan your system for missing or corrupt system files, and replace them if needed.

Thank you for taking the time to help. Unfortunately I have'nt been able to find any of my Windows disc's for quite some now. :) Is there some other way?.

I got it working. I re-downloaded the latest service pack and it must've fixed whatever was causing the problem.
