My computer goes through the entire boot process and then stops before loading any desktop icons or start menu. It does this in both regular and SAFE mode. It goes past the Windows Sign in screen, but when it goes past that point, the start menu flashes at the bottom of the screen and it just goes to the wallpaper. I can move the mouse, but can't right click and when I push CTRL-ALT-DEL there shows nothing running. I've restored registry, etc, but no luck. It almost seems like Explorer begins to run, then closes down. I can't even get into SAFE mode because it does the same thing. I've used a boot disk, but does the same thing. I have re-installed windows 98 3 times with no improvement. OS Win98SE Abit KT7A CPU ATHLON 900 HDDX2 MAXTOR Hope you can help.
