Hi, just now i tried to boot up my pc, and when i log in, the wallpaper comes up but the GUI doesnt i.e. no taskbar, no icons etc. i am loading the programs now through task manager. help all. thanks in advance.

ps. i have already rebooted like 3 times to no avail and also logged in as different user.

hm.. i also cant log into i.e. email, amazon using secure server. it says server not found or something.

okay now something is really weird. a program seeming to be written in delphi loaded itself just now and says 'it's time' then i click okay and it says runtime error not found and then the dekstop loaded up. Arghw hats going on? virus? or hacker?

hi again, i ran the scan and all virus definitions were up to date mind you. no infected files found. what could have caused the desktop not loading. Anyone else have any ideas?
