I want to create a tree directory on a form.  What control should I use...treeview?  This tree directory should show all the drives and files in my local disk and have icons, like desktop, my computer, briefcase, folder, etc.

The DirListBox is a hierarchical list of directories. Isn't it a tree? Of cause, it can't show drives, but you can combine it with drivelistbox control.
