After I installed SP2 I could no longer right-click on an icon. I uninistalled SP2 and right-clicking went back to normal. Any ideas?

what happens when you right click...anything at all?

do you have divx encoding installed? AN older version caused this

If I rt-click any icon on the desktop I get an error message: The instruction "0x02ca05e0" [a diffent number appears each time - 0x01ca05e0 etc -] referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be written. Click on OK to terminate the program or Cancel to debug the program. If you click on Cancel and Debug Task Manager show "My Computer not responding". If you click on OK to terminate the prgram the icons all disappear off the desktop and then reapper. As far as I know I don't have Divx encoding installed.

..as far as I know....not a very precise answer.

Start > Control Panel > add/remove software.

Search for divx, if there, remove it

My sense is that Method 2 is the preferred choice for you
