Keith,
Still same problem after reboot.

Whiskeyman,
Tried old restore point also. That made no difference.


Any other ideas?


Did you try the quoted suggestion?

Keith and others,
First, thanks for the suggestions. I decided not to reinstall Win XP. From past experience I have screwed up twice doing that and had to bring PC in to vender to repair. Instead I spent 4 painstaking hours removing startup programs one by one from MSCONFIG (system configuaration utility) and rebooting the notebook. Finally on the 4th hour I found the culprit. "IPMON32 C:\ProgramFiles\Verizon Online\visualIP Insight\IPMON32.exe". As soon as I unchecked this box in front of this program and rebooted Explorer.exe worked. Rechecke dthe other programs I removed and rebooted and it still works. I don't know what this program does just know it is associated somehow with Verizon Yahoo. Thanks again everybody. Maybe this can help someone else in the future.

That's strange... Verizon is also my ISP, and I have the same file, yet no problems.

Installed with Verizon DSL accounts. IP Insight is a Quality of Service monitor and diagnostic tool that isn't required - see here for more information

The file had been there for a long time on my laptop then suddenly it caused a problem. Maybe it became corrupted. I don't know. I just glad I didn't have to reinstall Win XP. Iknow that would have been a problem too.
