I use windows 2000 and i noticed that i cant open the internet explorer browser from the desktop or open a new window from a link on the internet unless i get rid of this process by first going to the task manager and taking of the explorer process and the taking this process off. Then i go to new process and type in explorer. That brings back the desktop Jeff
mcaffe virus software sucks, but if you insist on using them do NOT disable this program. Mike Chambers
