  2. It probably means that explorer.exe crashed.
    You can start it again using Task Manager's File menu.
    E.g. press Ctrl-Alt-Delete to get a dialog to start it.

    BTW always disclose your OS and version when you ask for help.
    Otherwise post in a newsgroup where such information might be inferred.

    I have the same problem and need more informtion on how to solve the
    problem. I went to the task manager, but didn't know what to do next.

    BTW, my OS is Windows XP Professional.

  4. Switch to the Processes tab. Check to see if explorer.exe is running.
    If it isn't; start it using the File New... command (or by switching to the
    Applications tab and using the New Task... button.


    Good luck

    Robert
