This morning I have a number of problems:
Shortcut to desktop icon has disappeared from the quickstart menu
I have now fixed this, but included as may give a clue...........
Outlook express would not start.
After reader previous posts, I have unclicked "read only" from all the .dbx files, which lets OE start, but now it cannot find the address book.
Now when I click for a new message it just says "address book failed to load" then "there was a problem opening this message". I also cannot manage my identities. I do have a *.wab file - and it is all of my addresses. when I select import.address book nothing happens. Now fixed - I unchecked "read only" and restarted the computer. Address book loaded, IDs can be managed.
Firefox will not run properly
When starting firefox I get "could not initialize the browsers security component......" and a load of other stuff about full disks being full and profiles. Needless to say I have 108GB of free disk space
IE6 has lost all bookmarks
Because firefox will not run properly I started IE6 to type this. All my bookmarks have disappeared. Also it will not load a .swf from my webpage.
Half the icons on my desktop are opaque
Not a huge problem - but why?
AVG shows no problems. Neither do adaware or spybot. I have also done a couple of system restores to ever increasing earlier dates. This hasnt helped.
