    Hey. I turned my computer on and after it got to the welcome screen, the wallpaper loads, and then the computer stops doing anything. No icons load. I went into task manager, and i think rundll32.exe isnt running. when i tryn to say new task for it though, nothing happens. By pressing browse in the new task window, I managed to connect to the internet but its a little awkward. also, my system Idle process is 97 cpu, and everything else is zero. (except for task manager which is 01...) anyway... does ne1 know what to do? I really need this to work and i wont be very happy if i have to reinstall windows...

    Have you tried System Restore, or Last Known Good Configuration?
