Existing symptoms are: It appears to boot to a normal Desktop, the mouse works, but nothing responds - nothing opens or runs, including Start and the rest of the taskbar. Tried several times to System Restore in F8 Safe Mode with the Command Prompt. System Restore seems to work fine until it displays the large white window at the very end - but bombs (locks up) before any text is displayed.
The only fix idea I have come up with is to try to repair Windows XP using "How to perform an in-place upgrade (reinstallation) of Windows XP" http://support.micro...kb;[LN];Q315341
I see your forum has a pinned post "Repair Windows XP" showing how to perform it as well.
Is this the way to proceed, or do you have other suggestions first?
