Specs: Windows XP, 3.06GHz
In the past few days when I start my p.c. my icons & the system tray don't come up.
If I shut down (cold boot) & hit F8 during reboot, I go to start with last good config., It starts fine. I did a virus scan & adware scan & it is clean. I even did a system restore without resolving the problem.
Could someone please tell me what the problem may be & how it can be fixed?
TIA

Take a look at the event logs.
There you may find some errors that must be solved, to get it to work.

Please send a reply, if you solved the problem !!!

Is the service for event logs still stopped, or why don't you have any event log entries?

Yes it was stopped. I was told it uses allot of resources.
I guess I should have had it set on auto. It is now.
If I can't bring it up could it be something else? Thanks so much for your help.

It has nothing to do with the event log, but the event log can help you, to figure out, where the problem is, because windows and windows programs do make entries into the event log on failure that might show you the right direction to solve the problem.

When ever I go to the event viewer this is what I get.
Unable to complete the operation on "System" The interface is unknown.

Doubleclick the eventlog service and check the dependencies of that service.
Then check whether some of the dependend services are also stopped.

I was able to get the info since some of the other services were stopped.
This was the error: Service Control Manager.
I went to Start Up and did away with some of my programs loading at start up. Since I have done that it seems to be working fine now. I'll see what happens tommorow, hopefully it will work.
I will let you know.
Thanks Again

Thanks so much for your help it seems to be working fine now.
Must have been something to do with turning off the wrong services.
