I am Working on a  Windows 2000 Computer  when I open My Computer All the  tools and toolbars are missing  I have tried right clicking everywhere and nothing comes up the only thing that i am able to see is My Computer but the rest of the tools   Files- Edit - View etc are gone I cant get them back by right clicking, dragging or anything. Even if i open my C: drive through my computer the toolbar does not show up, This only happens through my computer because if I use Windows Explorer all my tools are there.  Please help.

Hi jarceo,

Try the system file checker:
Start => Run => type "SFC /scannow" (without the quotes) and press enter.

The Ultimate Checklist to Optimize Your Website

Websites are getting bigger and complicated by the day. Video, images, custom fonts are all great for showcasing your product/service. But the price to pay in terms of reduced page load times and ultimately, decreased sales, can lead to some difficult decisions about what to cut.

"?Why F11?

Sorry, posted before I reread the post.  I figured that maybe the user had accidentally hit F11 to begin with, but thinking about it, he would prabably have mentioned that the window took up the whole screen.  :(

Missed the part about the toolbars being there in explorer.  Whoops..
