Hi
I have an DELL inspiron 1525 with Windows Vista Home premium.

when i access the My Computer i am getting this Message

The location is not available
c:\windows\system32\config\systemprofile\desktop refers to a location that is
unavailable. it could be on a hard drive on this computer.or on a network.
check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that you are
connected to the internet or your network and then try again. if it still
cannot be located the information might have been moved to a different
location.

thanks in Advance

seenuguddu,

Have you recently installed any Norton/Symantec software or possibly any other security software? If so, did you have any other security programs/suites on there before doing so, other than those that come with Vista (i.e. Windows Defender, Windows Firewall)?

Try this:
1) Click Start and type c:\users into the Search box and press Enter.
2) Double-click on your profile's folder (i.e. the one that may have your name or whatever you named the profile that you are using).
3) Right-click on the Desktop folder, click Properties and then choose the Location tab.
4) Click the Restore Default button and then click OK.
5) Close all windows and restart the computer.
6) See if you can access Computer but don't panic if it doesn't work and you get the same error message as there are more things to try.
7) Post back here with the results.

Hi -

You're looking for a file, or a directory?
