I'm running XP Pro on a Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop. I have two users on it, mine being the main one. No passwords, no difference between them. The other user works fine, no issues. My user, the taskbar shows up, with my Quicklaunch toolbar on it, as well as the clock and network connectivity on the right. There's no icons on my desktop, and I can't righ click to see if a refresh would work. :mad:

I can click on the Start menu, but I can't get anything to run. The cursor moves as if it's loading the program, then stops. Nothing is running in the task manager.

On the other user, I've run a defrag, a virus scan, a spyware scan, and everything else I could possibly think of. Any ideas why one user would be fine, and the other doesn't function?? :confused: :confused:

Any help would be appreciated!! :eek:
