    I recently upgraded my daughters laptop - Acer Aspire One from W7 starter to Home Premium. All seemed fine however she has just tried to go online - during the boot up sequence it reaches her desktop wallpaper (without any icons) and gets no further.
    There are no error messages and I am not sure what to do next. The only thing I have done recently is to download software to wirelessly link to a HP printer.
    The PC is only a few weeks old.
    Should I reinstall Windows as there is very little in the way of programmes on the PC.?
