I'm having an issue where, upon booting, my Windows 2000 laptop doesn't appear to complete booting. Upon further examination, it does boot, but the task bar goes away and I cannot seem to get it back. I'm able to do a ctrl-alt-del and open the task manager. From there, I can open a command prompt window and, using DOS commands, navigate around and start windows programs.
I can start firefox, ad-aware, ... I can access the internet. When I try to execute \winnt\explorer.exe, I do not get an error, BUT I also do not get the explorer!
I'm open to suggestions as to where I can look to fix this!
