Win XP pro. start up and shut down changed Tags: Configuration Shutdown Windows XP Last response: January 26, 2011 4:02 PM in Windows XP Share uioxk January 26, 2011 3:40:58 PM I think it may have been caused by installing .net framework but I am not sure. Just yesterday when windows would start up, it would go straight to the desktop but it has changed to where a grey box would show up stating "loading preferences" or "windows is loading" When clicking shutdown in the start menu, before it was a box with 3 icons "shut down, restart, sleep" but now it has changed to a scroll menu. Does anybody know the cause of this and what I can do to fix this? Please help. Thank you.
