    When I turn on my computer everything goes smoothly but then when it loads the desktop some of the files on my desk top just shows as an application without the normal image. On the quick launch bar it shows black squares and same in the start menu. My OS is Windows 2000 and I have service package 2. I have not set a restore point. Help!

    Thanks in advance.

    Try again and post the error msg if it happens again.
    You might want to consider re-installing 2000 also.
