When I start up my computer, it takes awile to load. Then when it does, the desktop will load as usual, all of my icons will load, and everything will be ok. But then, before I can click on anything or access any files, the screen goes blank. I can only see my desktop Background, I can't click on anything, task manager will not come up, I cannot right-click, access the start menu, nothing. Like my desktop of Howl's Moving castle has abducted my computer.
However, if I do ctrl+alt+delete a few hundred times, it will eventually come up, while it is open, windows explorer is not there. I don't know what I did either, the only thing I had installed lately is MSN Messenger 7.0 and I disabled this at start-up, thinking that this might be the problem. But Alas, my computer still does not work properly.
I can however, start it up in safe mode, without the desktop taking over, but this is no use, since I cannot access the internet, thus, not being able to update my Virus protection.
please, please, I beg of you to help me. I was merely clicking on Windows Media player when this happened! Is that so WRONG? I only wanted to Watch Invader Zim (DVD) and my desktop ATE my computer! ;.;
I run a WindowsXP Home Edition by the way.
Never mind. It happened again....And I don't know WHY it's doing it, either.
