I had the same problem & follwed the suggested solutions links. Problem is, after I clicked "OK" nothing happens on my PC except a display of my
monitor screen pics. The task bar is not showing, the icons that usually are showing is not there. I can move my mouse & I can see the cursor. I can not go to the control panel or to the start menu as there is no icon showing. How can I control now my PC to reinstall the Windows XP?
