have lost the ability to have the desktop show up after login? This problem exists in both safe mode
and run mode. At the moment the only way I can get the explorer to open is by using the task manager. In old 3.1 days you could edit your windows.ini to edit your boot sequence. I am puzzled how I got here. As for the 1394 port issue I have removed the card from the system as the suspect problem but the "my computer" icon is does not display correctly.
I did read a microsoft fix for Windows Image Acquisition (WIA). I did find this running in run mode and not running in safe mode. So it is possible this has been cured. So I am back to the main issue of
not getting a desktop after login.
I have norton anti-virus installed, I have run Lavasoft checking for worms or trogans non found.
Hope to hear back on this one
