No desktop icons Explorer Hangs

August 31, 2004 4:35:00 AM

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.configuration_manage (More info?)

Recently experienced number of problems on XP prof sp1
(not Networked)
1. log on and no desktop icons appear , just wallpaper
2. windows explorer hangs when browsing folders (usually
personal \ shared documents)
3. Can access IE hompage but then nothing responds

have ran msconfig + there appears to be no pattern as to
when it works \when it doesnt i.e. it may have worked with
a few services selected but next time boot up problem re-
appears

No restore points avialable

Leaning towards flattening PC + re-install XP but any
advice appreciated
