|This started a couple of weeks ago -- I truned on and started up my PC and had no desktop but did have the iexplore error message when I tried to get on the internet - I hadn't installed anything new. |
Working through Windows Task Manager-New task I can get to almost all my software, I ran virus scans and found nothing - my IE is version 6, I reinstalled it (using firefox) -- no help. I went back to prior backups - as far as I had which was 3-4 months and that didn't help (made no difference).
I do have the install W2k disk - but am concerned that if I use it I will have to reinstall all my programs -- I am not a gamer, and have a lot of business and investing programs - most were downloaded from the internet over several years (none real recent).
My W2k service packs are current.
I do have W2k on another PC so I could transfer a file or files from my working PC to the desktop it that would help.
Neither explore.exe nor iexplore.exe are listed under Task Manager Processes yet they are both listed on my working PC.
