I have compaq nx6110 with windows xp. When I boot it up and get to my desktop as soon as I click on anything, I get the hourglass. Then the icons blink and I get the arrow again. I can go into safe mode and have tried to do a system restore but it looks like all my restore points were deleted. I'm not sure what's wrong and I'm really not that good with computers so if you reply, please be gentle...lol I don't know the meaning of a lot of the jargon you use.
