I double click on My Computer icon and I cannot see the Icons for my system drives and the system crashes.

Other times when the drives do appear, I try to access a drive and the system crashes.

What causes this and how can I fix it?

I am running Win2k Pro

Also, Disk management does not open.
WIll I have to do a repair from the install disk?

Disk management may not open if your account does not have Administrator Priveleges.

HI,
Ok, find the Win2K install CD, boot to it, let it proceed til it says it found an existing copy of the OS.
When prompted say you want to repair the existing copy. The only thing that will be replaced are the system files.
DO NOT create, delete partitions, or all data will be lost.

got it, I will run a standard repair and see if it works.
I have already copied all important files to the D: drive and backed up the D: drive to a data DVD in case I have to go through with a reformat of c:.

thanx
