Hi, I have just installed Windows XP 64 bit onto my new PC. At first, it worked fine, but after my first reboot, I was no longer able to see the taskbar or Desktop icons. It seems to me that explorer.exe isnt running at all (not displayed in task manager), nevertheless, I have it in my windows folder.
What should I do to fix this?

Howdy and welcome to GTG:

Going to ask the obvious here, but is your new system 64bit compatible?

Also, is the XP cd new or been used before?
