Basically, in the Save As dialog box, you have the five shortcut boxes at the side (My recent documents, Desktop, My documents, My Computer and Network Places). If I click on Desktop, each of the above programs then hangs.
Even if I choose desktop under the "save in" pull down menu or another method it still hangs - it will not display the desktop icons or files in the main window in the save as dialog box - it just goes white and hangs.
I used windows explorer to view the desktop files and move things to and from it and my desktop appears normal to the eye. My desktop was a little cluttered but I have cleaned it up and the problem remains.
Other steps I have taken - Disk Cleanup and Disk defrag, all windows updates. I did recently install messenger live msn but other colleagues have and it did not cause this issue.
Any help greatly appreciated
P.S - I'm noticing that on my dekstop a lot of the icons aren't being built properly and are the standard page icon where it hasn't loaded the real icon. Maybe I need to fix the icons?
Im using Windows XP Service Pack 3
