Hello Sid,

Check in the registry at the locations below to see if you have HideSCANNetwork in the right pane. If you do, then delete it. You can also use METHOD THREE in this tutorial.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

and

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer


Hope this helps,
Shawn

Some say that restarting the computer a few times restores it as well. May be worth a try if you haven't already.

Sid,

It's usually only a couple of restarts instead. You might consider a System Restore using a restore point dated before this problem to see if it can help.
