Whenever I try to open anything on my desktop except AOL explorer, my desktop clears ( all the icons and start bar ) for a few seconds, then comes back and the program will not open.

I have no idea where to look for this problem............help

Let's try this first

start > run, type

Right click application and choose CLEAR ALL EVENTS, do not save the log
Right click system and choose CLEAR ALL EVENTS, do not save the log

Reboot. Work with computer until error recurs. reboot

start > run, type

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.
