    Hi.

    My problem is that when I leave my computer on and go away for a while that it goes to the welcome screen (not the problem). After I log back on windows explorer usually closes down. So the taskbar and all my icons are gone. It also happens during games sometimes.

    Can someone help?

    Also, My firefox keeps clearing my bookmarks and personal settings.Is there a way to fix that?

    Thanks,
    Kaku

    For your Firefox problem, try the following.
    Start> Mozilla Firefox> Mozilla Firefox(Safe Mode). This starts Firefox without
    any extensions and the default theme. If this solves the problem, then it is an
    extension or theme effecting Firefox. If that doesn't help, create a new profile.
    Your profile may have become corrupt.
