Hi,
I run XP Pro.Just recently (tonight in fact), if there's no mouse activity for 2 or 3 minutes or so, all the desktop icons and the toolbar disappear, just leaving the default screensaver! The mouse cursor is still visible and can be moved. Attempts to bring up the Task Manager don't work, and the only option is to restart the PC, can anyone help please?

Thanks

Ian

have you tried disabling the screen-saver in display properties?

I had this a couple of years ago. It was a virus that I simply couldn't remove. Had to reinstall windows. Sorry.
