I have XP on a Dell Dimension. Today the icons on my desktop replicated 3 times. My control panel has everything duplicated 5 times. All Programs has everything replicated by around 10 times.
Can't System restore. Virus checker working.
What's happened.
Dell and Microsoft have no ideas

Anyone please

have you tried doing a repair install of xp. put in the xp setup disk and follow the instructions to repair windows. You should also remove any software that you recently installed, even if you don't think it is causing the problem

Is today the first time they have appeared?
If so did you try shutting down and re-booting to see if it rights itself
