Hi, i am having a persistent problem with my pc

Running WinXP Pro

WHen I open a folder, sometime it does not open the folder, but instead the entire desktop refreshes, ie all the icons and task bar dissapear and then reload.

This is highly annoying as i canot access any folders, including my computer.

Help please?  Huh?

Please keep in mind that none of us who work on these support forums are paid for what we do. Our efforts are on an entirely volunteer basis, and if we're away from the forums for any amount of time, that means that our real-life responsibilities haven't left us with any free time to dedicate to our work here.


Run the System File Checker

Go to the Run box on the Start Menu and type in:

sfc /scannow   ( sfc if not reconized)    (Note that there is a space between sfc and /scannow)

This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem.


In all likelihood you will be prompted to insert the Windows XP CD.
