I have had lots of problems with my new computer, and so I'm trying to get my cash back. However one of the problems has mystified me and a clue as to what is going on would be interesting - has anyone an idea. Any attempt to create a new folder, from an explorer or anywhere else, causes the desktop to blank. All icons disappear and are then redisplayed. This means that I cannot create new places for specific items, such as letters, and so on. I'm running XP Home (SP2)and I think that somewhere there is corruption.
Much time and angst has passed, but it's sorted. I think I picked up a lng from this forum to simplyguides.net, where there was some bvery hekpful advice about how to repair WindowsXP. I followed the instructions and lo - all now works very well indeed. So, I was right. Windows XP was damaged in some way, by the fools who had installed a new power supply on my machine. Sop all is well. Thanks for your suggestions guys.
