Icons not working

  Howard's Way 15:39 23 Nov 03

I have Windows ME and yesterday my computer would not shut down. So after about 10 minutes of a blank screen and the ctrl alt del not working I turned off the computer. Today all started well but it went into Active Desktop recovery but no icons work by clicking on them. But the mouse arrow moves freely around the screen. I rebooted again as the start icon does not work. Ctrl alt del works but the buttons displayed do not. I rebooted into safe mode same problem there! I thought I could get at the restore and go back to Friday when all was well. Anybody got any ideas, other than re-installing or re-formatting!

I really think that if Safe Mode doesn't work, then reformatting and reinstallation will be the quickest and easiest way to get going again. I just hope that all your saved files are backed up or on a different drive!
