Hi
sorry Will but that didn't do anything now my comp like freeze on the
desktop when i start it up and so i have to end explorer.exe and then logout
and log back in also all my programs and game the .exe files all have the
window icon and not the right one say like the picture icon that it's meant
to have.
i think there is something wrong with my explorer.exe is there anyway i can
reinstall it or something because seems like every program crashes when i
open it
hope that help
