Open My Computer in a web browser window

Hey all.

I need to make the webbrowser control in a windows application open up
'My Computer' on a command, so the user can view all their own drives.
It can open up C:/ etc. and you can also navigate to 'My Computer'
from there. But I cannot seem to make it open up 'My Computer' on its
own. When I navigate to my computer from the browser manually the
address comes up as ::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}, and that
does not work when I try and navigate to in the code.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

How are you navigating to "My Computer" in the web browser manually? It
pops open Windows Explorer for me on this, and "C:\" and any other normal
windows explorer function.

I can open 'My Computer' manually by selecting it from the browser in
the left hand navigation bar.. which I think you normally have to
enable in windows.. I just need to know what you open in the browser
to just see a list of all your drives. Either the same as when you
press windows key + e to get the explorer or when you go to my
computer.
