While in AOL, I decided to ask for mail counts in real time. AOL Companion said "go to keyword Deskbar, click to download." That was the end of everything. A box popped up saying Data Execution Prevention. It stated that Windows has closed the Windows Explorer program to protect the computer. I figured that if Windows didn't want to load it, then fine, I can live without it. So I tried to close the box and go back to AOL to do other things. Now I cannot open or close anything, not even Start. Cannot right or left click on any icon. The Task Manager is no help. All I have is a cursor on the wallpaper. Tried turning main power off, waiting, and then turning back on. Still nothing. Tried to use keyboard shortcuts instead of the mouse. I have fixed a lot of computer issues in the past, but this is impossible because I can't look at files, folders, program lists, or run anything. So now I am at a friend's computer trying to get help. Anyone ever have this problem? If so, how did you solve it?

Hi -

If you have your XP CD or a Restore CD place it in the computer and see if the system recognises it -

Thanks - :thumbsup:
