Hello, I've been having some trouble with my computer lately. When I try to log on, only my wallpaper is shown. When I start up task manager, I notice under the processes that explorer is taking up 98-99 of the CPU! It shows, too- it takes me at least a minute on average from when I press ctrl+alt+del to when the actual window pops up. To actually access my desktop, I have to end explorer and then start it again as a new task.
I can get on most of the time, but other things are making it very frustrating. I have another problem; whenever I click on a folder, it closes explorer just for a brief moment and then I return. But no folder comes up. The same thing happens when I try to open up control panel, I see the wallpaper and nothing else. And no control panel. Also, the whole position of my toolbars change when that happens.
I also have System Doctor 2006 popping up every other second when I'm trying to work. There is probably a relatively easy method of removing it, I just need someone to walk me through.
You're probably tired of me already, but my keyboard locks up a lot when I start my computer. I was going to see if I could remove some of these pesky things by going into safe mode, but when I pressed F8 on startup, the selection was frozen on normal and I couldn't access any other options, basically pressing up or down wouldn't move anything. My keyboard does run off of a USB port, so that could just be a hardware problem.
The main reason I so desperately have to use my computer is that I write music constantly. If you can help me out here, expect a song dedicated to you guys. ;P
Thanks for your time,
