Hello I had some problem with pop ups and one of the administrator helped me clean things up. I'm still having some problems, he advised me these are operating programs and that maybe you guys in this forum could help me out.

Operating system is XP with SP2 on a dell laptop.

issues.

1. When computer starts desktop is blank and I have to run task manager and run explorer.exe to get it to come up. Once up everything is fine.

2. IE 7 is giving an error when I try to post something that it has an error and needs to close, alos I have AOL and it will sign on and then sign off, saying connection lost.

3. On my touch pad of my laptop the scroll area does not work on the touch pad.

Any help is appreciated, thank you in advance.

Ok I have something fixed now. I only need #1 on my list fixed.

I can not see my desktop unless I run task manager and run explorer.exe. Also when I first sign on it says my virtual memory is low. Never had this problem before not sure what it could be.


CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME OUT, it is driving me crazy looking for the fix.
