Hi
My Drive C which holds my Windows installation does not appear in my
computer or in any menus. Every other drive is still showing.
What can I do to get my HD C showing in My Computer?

Thank you,
Micheal

Hi Micheal,

Download Tweak UI and install it (from
http://download.microsoft.com/download/f/c/a/fca6767b-9ed9-45a6-b352-839afb2a2679/TweakUiPowertoySetup.exe -
this requires atleast XP SP1)

Start Tweak UI and click the (+) sign near the My Computer section
Select Drives
In the right-pane, uncheck the drive-letters that you want to unhide
Click Apply, OK
