When I open the My Computer folder in winows explorer, the window shows only a white blank screen. There is no search light looking for drives or anything, just white. Also, all of the links to My Computer were removed or hidden, however I was able to restore the link on My Desktop. Even the shortcuts to My Computer on the side of a save window and windows explorer windows are gone. Oh and on another profile on the computer everything works fine. Has anyone experienced anything like this? I have Windows XP Service Pack 3 and here is my Hijack this log:

Hi :thumbsup:.

Anytime that a system with multiple users...experiences problems which other users don't have...I have to suspect a damaged user profile.

I would try creating a new user profile and moving settings, etc. from the troubled profile to the newly created profile.
