Hope this helps. If not, be sure to post back so folks will know you still need help with it.
Can not open my control panel, when I go to start and click on control panel what occurs is the desktop clears itself of all desktop icons, the desktop background is showing and the desktop icons reappear. Also the following will not open: My Documents, My Pictures, My Music, My Computer, and My Network Places. I've tried system restore but even that will not let me go back 2 months. Any suggestions? Thanx
