It is difficult to pinpoint why the desktop went blank. How much memory do you have on your PC? Also, I do not understand what you mean by running programs using task manager.

Your best bet is Firefox. IE7 is yet to mature.

Hey bro, what does the error message say? And, the desktop had no icons, start button or task bar? I guess something went wrong with the "explorer.exe" process. See if trying updating Windows from the microsoft websote would fix the problem 馃槈 Oh, an as Elisa suggested, Firefox is a good alternative!

Elisa, I think vikki meant running programs using task manager by using that "New Task" function under File. Never thought it would be a useful thing!

Lord_EC, that's a great find! I hope vikki has used it before reinstalling XP 馃槢

Actually, I use IE7 too at times. It seems alrite as long as you patch Windows up frequently. And, make sure you download IE7 from a trusted website 馃槈
