     My school did not allow us to access explorer, or any drive beyond our network drive or a:\. In addition, we could not run any unapproved apps. Needless to say, this situation was unacceptable so I took a few min and did this little vba app in excel (which we could access). It acts as an explorer, allowing the user to navigate drives, subfolders and run apps. It uses the filesystemobject and the shell command to work and the data is displayed via listboxes. It is a demo of the get files/folders/parent dir with use of the filesystemobject. Hope it helps (this is assuming you can rum macros with your security program running).

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
