Hi guys, nearly all the icons on my home xp, are whited out, except
mozilla/Outlook/My computor/Unused Icons. Id just turned on my computor and
it went into Diskscan before ending up as above. I dont have access to help
and support via Windows explorer but do have access to Run/Search and Control
panel via windows explorer.Just before I restarted the system AVG Antivirus
had done an automatic Update.My PC is also protected against Spyware pop-ups
and the like.Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

How to Perform a Windows XP Repair Install: http://michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm
If you run an XP "Upgrade"setup, from the original, or "Gold" version of the setup CD, and you have SP2 installed, it might go into
a setup loop, and you could lose your install. Uninstall SP2, BEFORE you Upgrade setup from CD (that lacks sp2 on it.)
