    Have a brand new Dell 4700. Running XP

    The following "problem" has happened for the second time now,and am now geting quite concerned as it's a brand new PC.

    Everything else "seems" to be just fine, though. Not using any games.

    I was away from PC for about an hour yesterday, and when I went
    back I found that double clicking on any or all of the desktop shortcut icons would do nothing. Wouldn't open.

    Also, going to the pull-down menu, and selecting OPEN, wouldn't work either.

    Problem has also happened just now again during normal usage.
    Re-booted, and all fine again.

    What might have caused ?
    Any thoughts on would be most appreciated.

    If this is a new PC from Dell you need to get in touch with their tech support people.
