The issue of the freezing of my daughter's explorer bar was discussed in the other thread. One suggestion, by David was 100% on target (as usual!). I created a new user and it worked fine, switching to the old user eventually froze the machine.
Instead of running FAST (and potentially bringing over whatever bug exisited in the first user), I decided to 'rebuild' this user, not a lot of fun, but at least I know what is there.
One response in the other thread asked about a relationship between the SP2 upgrade and this freeze problem. Not being an expert (and we can all agree on that) I can state that if the new user works and the old user freezes, the problem (probably) isn't related to SP2.
For the record, I wholeheartedly endorse upgrading to SP2. I have had no problems (related to the upgrade) that I am aware of. If anyone is 'sitting on the fence', (as long as you don't have one of the 50 applications known to cause problems) I would advise upgrading.
Thanks to all who pitched in for all your help, and thank you CNET for brining us David!
