Just a quick one guys, nothing really but it's just a bit annoying, when I double click on the 'my computer' desktop icon it doesn't open, just thinks for a second then does nothing. The same for if I try accessing it through the start menu. I am still able to get into the drives but by accessing control panel etc then using the drop down menu to proceed to C: D: or whatever I want. Any ideas on resolving this. I've already; right clicked, properties, desktop, customize desktop and tried playing around with removing/restore default. Any ideas?

I would try the chkdsk /r command.

After that completes and system reboots into XP, I would run defrag.

What changes have been made before the problem? Have you tried out safemode first to check on the difference?
