    Ok its my first time on here.

    Basicly, when I download a file and double click it on my desktop, my icons disappear. If I click My Computer or Control Panel or My Documents...etc, my taskbar disappears and icons and everything except my background disappear. It reappears after a few seconds.

    And when I click on the Icons on my desktop, the same thing happens.

    I've asked some people and they said its the explorer.exe file thats corrupted or something but I can;t fix it because I can't access My Computer because it disappears!

    Any help is greatly appritiated.

    P.S. I don't have a Windows XP CDn because it came pre-installed on here
    Also, I did PC System Recovery. It fixed it, up until the point where I uninstallled Norton (free trial is pre installed) then I installed my Panda Anti-Virus 2007...After I restarted my pc after uninstalling Norton it started doing it again.
