XP/Pro SP3 Hiccups Tags: Windows XP Shutdown Icons Last response: October 10, 2011 4:38 PM in Windows XP Share ksiemb October 10, 2011 4:31:15 PM Senario: Startup - then Shutdown Startup ok - then Shutdown Startup ok - then Shutdown. Startup - get desktop wallpaper, no icons, no Task bar, no system Tray Icons. Have to power down, even ctl/alt/del isn't active. Next startup, ok ! Note that nothing is run in any session, just startup & shutdown. How can an OS be so unreliable ? !
