    Hey guys,



    Weird problem.....I just upgraded from windows me to windows xp professional and after the upgrade all the icons on my desktop and the start flickers uncontrollably. I am using a TNT Nvidia 32 mb card and I upgraded my drivers to windows xp but it didnt help. I changed my refresh rate to a lower setting and that didnt help eithor. I even went as far as to delete and recreate everything on my desktop. Any suggestions would be great. Kind of desperate atm . As usual thanks guys and have a good weekend.

    Did you check for incompatability in systems properties/device drivers?

    Have you ran an updated virus scan?

    Do you have ad-aware for spyware?

    Yes, we were down because of some server problems.

    Yes, XP can be uninstall and restore the previous Windows operating system you were using. This feature only applies if you are upgrading your computer from Windows 98 and Windows Millennium Edition (Windows Me), not a full install.

    Select Start, Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs, Change or Remove Programs, Windows XP Uninstal, Change/Remove, and then click Uninstall Windows XP.
