    I have Windows XP. For at least the last 24 hours, I haven't been able to get any of the items on the start menu to come up, like "My Computer" or even Control Panel. I'm not positive, but I think it began when I tried to install a disk that came with a little digital camera I just got. However, it may have been a problem before that. I didn't notice, because I am not much of a computer expert and I have been able to get into the icons I have on my desk top, like a couple of games and my email. I have also recently added Mozilla as my internet browser as a try at solving excessive pop-up problems and it has been great, but now I can't get internet explorer up at all. (But that's a separate issue. ) I also am unable to get programs from my "all programs" menu to boot. I did try system restore, but so far no luck. Maybe I didn't go back far enough in the restoration? I can't even word process except under my son's name, because he has Word Perfect on his desktop as an icon. Then we can get in! ????
    I'm baffled. jillyh
