CD USED AS ICON FOR HDD

Hello friends, I have a strange problem on my Win98SE pc. When I double-click "My Computer" on the desktop one of the folders that appear in the right pane is C: which is right. However, the corresponding icon is a CD with a Windows logo in it instead of an hdd icon.Upon double-clicking it a window titled "Windows 98 CDROM" appears with a Microsoft 98 logo on the top left corner. Then 2 options appear below namely:
. Browse this CD
. Add/Remove software.
This window is the one which appears when I put the Win98 CD in the D: drive. STRANGE! It appears my C: drive is behaving like the a D: drive. When I point the mouse to the "Browse This CD" option, it changes to a hand as if I've pointed to an internet link. Upon clicking, the folders that appear are those on the C: drive. Why this behaviour, friends? Any fixes? Thanx in advance.

Open My Computer, then try View, Refresh This may clear the problem.

Another option is to see if you can get Tweak UI as a download from Microsoft. The XP version has an option to repair Icons If I remember correctly earlier version did too.


Hope one of these helps. Otherwise it could be a matter of delving into the registry. I'll leave that to someone else to advise!
