Repeated screen refresh in My Computer

  Jeffers99 18:26 11 Dec 2005

I'm running XP Home with SP2. Recently I get an issue with 'My Computer' where the initial process of replacing standard folder icons with specific icons for items such as My Documents, Recycle Bin etc. is repeated several times, varying from perhaps 4 to 30. The screen is refreshed for each repetition.
A different issue, which may be connected, is 'Control Panel' locking up whilst replacing it's initial icons with icons specific to the categories shown within Control Panel. This happens on most, but not all, occasions. The item on which it locks also varies.

try system restore to a date prior to your problem

I've been tolerating the My Computer problem for some weeks, and hadn't used Control Panel for a while so don't know when that became a problem. Don't really want to go back that far. But thanks.
