Hi all. Last time I used my PC I shut it down and installed updates. Now when I try to use it all kinds of things happen. The sound card does not appear to be recognised (ie i am told there is no mixer installed, also tracks in iTunes/Media Player do not play), despite chimes being played at logon, and my realtek sound demo working.
Also, I cannot get online through use of my wireless network (but I know the router is working).
Also, seemingly randomly during use, the PC taskbar, open program windows etc all look different, like older windows versions, or what it would look like had my PC booted in safe mode, but this usually reverts back to the XP style of its own accord!
Anyone have any ideas or solutions? Any help would be much appreciated.
I am running XP MCE with SP2, IE7 and Norton Internet Security 2007.
