XP mode machine not seeing local computers c: drive

I have a Windows 7 64-bit machine that has a Windows XP Mode virtual running on it.
I can't see the c: drive of the local computer from within the virtual. I have checked the network settings to make sure the local computer network adapter is in the virtual machine integration settings. It is now. It was shared networking. I changed it. But I still can't see the local computer.
I did do a \\computer name from explorer and it prompted me for the password and username. I enter that and I can see the shares, but I still can't see the local computer c: drive. This happened after some windows updates this week. Any ideas on how I can get the drive c: on the local computer to come back up?

Also, there are three integration devices in other devices which I can't seem to find drivers for. Some people say this is normal.

I disabled the virtual machine settings. Rebooted the physical machine after shutting down the virtual.
When I brought it back up and re-enabled the virtual machine settings, the drives showed up.

Usually the "C" drive shows up in the Windows XP virtual mode as a network drive C. As for the integrated devices, this is normal. Read this for more Information.

easiest way is rollback to a working state before windows update using system restore. first try it. XP mode uses usual file sharing with host OS. you can duble check them too
