I have 2 problems, First I think can't access my computer or my document files because of an illegal operation in explorer. Secondly my d drive has somehow vanished and I would like to find it again.

Regarding your D: drive, I'm assuming that it's a CD-ROM drive that should appear? Which Operating System are you running, i.e. Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000 Pro, Windows XP Pro or Home?

I'm running windows 98 on a micron platform. My d drive is my second hard-drive. My r drive is my cd-rom. I talked to someone about a partition finder. I think my d drive is still there, but my computer won't even recognize its existance anymore. I had about a gig on it, my c drive is about full.

The fastest way to get rid of it would be this:

Download Spybot - Search & Destroy

It looks for spyware, but also targets dialers, keyloggers, and other nasties, and it's freeware.
It ought to deal with all versions of Xupiter without a prob.

After installing, press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.

Next, go to the Settings tab > File Sets, and uncheck 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' .
These aren't needed for our present purpose, and you can always experiment with them later on.

Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds.

NOTE: SSD will sometimes not be able to remove all active components in the first 'run'.
In that case you will get a dialog asking you to run SSD at next start.
Click yes and reboot.
Subsequently SSD will come up before the system puts these components 'in use', and it will then be able to 'fix' the rest.

Good luck,
