I'm working on a computer here that is Windows XP MC SP3. When I go to boot it up I get the desktop image but no icons or task bar. I can however get the task manager. I've tried to shut down the system from task manager and it comes up with explorer.exe not responding. I ran the recovery console from windows disk and tried chkdsk. It tells me no problems but if I want to run anyway use /p. I ran chkdsk /p and after it finished typed exit. Windows came up normally and desktop was fine. Every thing worked fine. Then I shut it down. Now I'm back at desktop with no icons or task bar. Ran chsdsk /p once again it's fine until shutdown and restart. Any ideas??
Also this machine ejects the CD/DVD drives on boot up. Not sure if this is related or not.
