Hi I posted this an hour ago but it didn't appear. This is my first post to this group >>> Hi Windows 7 is driving me crazy. I lost all my desktop icons. A search for a cure brought me to your group. I tried to upgrade to the latest IE. When I launched it I got a white content area but if I moved my mouse over it the cursor changed to a pointer so the content was there but invisible. Tried to uninstall IE but could not. Tried to install the original IE but couldn’t because I had a later version. Tried to re-install SP1. This took ages and now it says Windows Evaluation copy. Build 760.
