My OS is XP home sp2.My other PC has suddenly refused to access the web although I can send and receive emails. Also all the icons on my desktop had suddenly scattered all over the screen.Norton AV has not detected any virus and adaware and spybot and Giant antispyware show nothing. I cannot download anything, for obvious reasons, so cannot try anything else. I have re arranged the icons and they have stayed in place. Any suggestions please before I call my local engineer.

Try safe mode with networking - if you can access the net then click here or click here

Hi Yoda Knight,Tried Safe mode and ran your second `click here` Trendmicro which found no virus BUT, the strange thing is that when I went back to normal bootup everything is working and I can get on the web Ok. I`ll probably never know why.
Hi stalion, thanks to you too for your suggestions. Regards, Meshuga.
