I have just installed a fresh windows 2000. After setting up all the programmes etc everything was fine. installed all web updates including service pack 4. Perfect.The very last thing was office 97 professional which looked up and i had to reset. Now on startup everything loads except the desktop icons. if i click around on the start menu the appear eventually but what could be causing the delay.I have disabled most things at startup. Any ideas!
i updated the installation by a belkin usb wireless adapter which i have now uninstalled and installed bt broadband ready to go to my other address. Would this have caused the problem? What about that lockup I couldn't save the settings before i reset the tower.
