C drive properties in server 2008 r2

I am unable to get into the properties of the c drive on my server.  When you right click the drive and click properties, it doesn't do anything.  If I right click the data drive I can get into the drive's properties.  It is strictly the c drive.  I have tried going through my computer, and disk management.  Configure shadow copies works, just not restore previous versions or the properties.  I can get into the properties of folders under the c drive, just not the root of c.  There were no errors in the log file either.  Any help is appreciated.

Did you Log in as administrator?
Also check the User Account Control Settings.
Control Panel > System and Security > Change User Account Control Settings

I think it started after installing the desktop user experience feature.  I don't see any errors in the log file, and I have disabled my anti virus.  user account settings are turned off.  Could something with the desktop user experience be causing the issue.

Yes, do this check. If it does not help, run procmon to monitor what is going on while "properties" is clicked.

And what was the solution?

bnussbaumAuthor Commented:
The anti-virus caused this.  Even with it disabled it still had the problem.  Once the anti-virus was removed the issue went away.

It didn't help. Very often, some random comment is selected as answer, it seems.
bnussbaum, please ask moderators to change it (select your own solution, if it solved your problem).
