I am running Vista Home Premium, 32 bit on a HP Pavillion a6220n PC, 2.0 ghZ Intel processor, 2.0 gbs of RAM, Vista Service Pak 1,and a 320 gb hard drive. After considerable reading and research, this appears to be a universal problem, with little help available. Here's the problem: When I reboot, the desktop and the taskbar freeze after icons on the taskbar load. Some icons load, some do not in the taskbar. I have no internet connection and all icons on the desktop are inoperable including folders. If I do a system restore I am up and running with no problems except when I have to reboot. I have a system that is clean after running multiple scans showing nothing in the line of viruses. I cleaned out the CPU case so it is spotless and dust free but I still have the problem come back only after rebooting. I have to do a system restore or go into Safe Mode to use the PC. Any, any, any help would certainly help me right now! I am exhausted and frustrated over this problem so I guess I need the pros on this one. Thanks in advance!
