Anyone help??

just done fresh install and all a sudden I cannot right click within the my documents folder without the computer locking up. Also, even with custoimised toolbar, the computer locks up if I try to get properties of a file or delete it and have to use task manager to close the non responding window.

Anyone know what gives and how to sort it please?

Thanks

Ok, have your install cd ready.

Click Start>run, type in 'sfc /scannow' (without quotes), hit enter. It will probably then ask for the disk. This will make the O/S check its' files against those on the disk, and replace any faulty ones. WARNING, YOU MAY HAVE TO UPDATE AGAIN, AS IT WILL OVERWRITE UPDATED FILES WITH OLDER ONES!.

Once you have done this, hopefully it will have corrected the problem. If not, I'd be looking at a registry problem being the cause. there are ways to check this, but I'm not that good at it, so someone else will have to help you there.
