Why is it that in Windows as soon as one things seem to be getting better something else pops-up. Seems like a problem toggle at work.

Windows XP SP2


These are probably all related

From the Start Page
[i] When I select the Start >> 'Help and Support' link a Shortcut Dialog box Pops up with the following msg >>
"Windows cannot create a shortcut here.
Do you want to the shortcut to be placed on the desktop instead"

[ii] Similar effect for Start >> 'Search'
[iii] Similar effect for Start >> 'Run'
[iv] Start >> 'Printers and Fax' Seems OK so far.

From the Control Panel
[i] I cannot open "Network Connection" to get to properties in order to set the Show Icon when connected option, of course this is not showing on the Taskbar.

[n] ... The many other SNAFU's still to be uncovered.


Is there a solution short of dumping the whole thing away?

(bolded mine)

Is the PC at your place of employment? If so then it is very possible the IT Dept. has restrictions in place to prevent changes. If this is the case then Forum policy does not allow us to discuss circumventing said policies.

Could also mean the system has a built in "ON/OFF" toggle for 'PROBLEMS', one or the other
This is my Home desktop computer at HOME

Further down I said

This would assume that I have authority to do so, unless I wanted to get fired as well
