My computer will not load desktop icons after boot up, it just hangs. It does boot all they way to my background. I DO have my task bar and start menu, however i can only use the run fuction in the start menu. I can also run task manager. I do get a few things loaded in the notification area (ie. where the clock is). I can run in safe mode with no problems at all, as a matter of fact im in safe mode with networking so i can use the internet. I read alot of other topics similar to mine and no have worked for me so far.
Things i have tried:
Boot from CD
Boot from recovery console
Task manager, File, New task, "explorer.exe"
I dont think its a virus/trojan but i could be wrong. When my computer started messing up is when i adjusted a tcp/ip tweak called TCP Opimizer. Oh and im using windows XP, sp2.
