My friend as a new dell with nice spec, 160 GB hd, 3000+ Athlon etc, recently his desktop has sorta been "dissapearing", (programs still running, but cant access anything on desktop), a restart cures the problem, but theres go to be a better way. ill be happy to add more info just tell me what you want to know

Sounds like explorer is dieing, has he done anything to windows lately? like running hijakcthis?

nope, maybe some casual downloading and installing, ill look at his comp in a little bit and add more to this

Casual downloading and installing of what though?
