i am new to this site, but don't know where else to turn. My PC has recently begun to not let me access files on my desktop. I can open programs, such as Microsoft Works, Internet Explorer, some software titles, my Nikon picture viewer, and some other stuff. But I can't get into any folders i've made, or the recycle bin, or even my control panel functions. I can access some of the files, for example i can go thru my email account and attach my resume, but i cannot get into my resume file on the desktop.

When i try to open the folders, my PC seems to freeze up, it gets stuck on the "hourglass" icon. Eventually it unfreezes, the desktop refreshes, and i get an error report referencing Dr. Watson Postmortem Debugger.

Any advice out there? I am at a loss, but i can't imagine a "postmortem" problem being very good.

Thank you- Brian
