Links in My Computer are not working. I open My Computer, then click on Control Panel, then when I click on any icon in Control Panel such as Add/Remove Programs the hour glass comes on but then nothing happens. The hour glass stays there forever. When I press Ctrl/Alt/Del, it brings up the Windows Task Manager window showing as task My Computer and status is Not Responding.
Why isn't My Computer responding? This is a computer i built that has an Asus A7V600 motherboard, an AMD 2800+ CPU, Windows XP Pro operating system, a LiteOn DVD rewriteable drive, a 120 GB WD hard drive, 512 MB of Kingston memory.
Can anyone help me with this?
