Hi all, just a couple days ago I installed a fresh copy of XP on my PC, the only trouble now is sometimes when I start it up it, it doesn't always show up the icons or anything, just shows the back ground but nothing else, I have waited for a few minutes but nothing changes, then I will restart it and then it comes up normal again.

appreciate any advise.
Thanks.

Correct graphics driver installed? Create another user and log in under that. See if it does the same thing. Could be your profile that might be corrupted.

The only thing I done differant this time, was set up another user.

If the profile is corrupted after a fresh install I'd run Memtest or the like.

Just a quick update, run the memory test everything is fine, all drivers were loaded, I created another user account and have been loging in with no troubles at all, so all seems well.

thanks to everyone that helped.
