After I did the overinstall, all those things work fine, except that now I can't change my desktop background. It seems like my computer isn't keeping track of changes I make. Folder options don't stay as I set them after I close the window, icons won't stay arranged by size, even my font in AIM preferences reverts back to the default after I close the preference window. Every time I use norton recycle bin, it gives me an error when I close saying "Unable to update registry to save column order and width information."
If anyone has any ideas, it would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
