Hi all need some help with desktop running xp with sp3, few days ago my son tried to load some photos from memory card, when he inserted card he said he got a error message.
What I can gather it was dr Morton debugger which said there was a problem and needed to shut down when he restarted the comp the task bar would not load the various icons in bottom right, and could not accesses the start menu.
When you place the curser over any part of the task bar it just shows the egg timer.
This happened a few months back when tried loading a cd but got the blue screen of death but I managed to use system restore, but this time tried system restore which restored to a previous time but still problem with task bar any help would be great full.
