I have XP Home
My computer just recovered from PSU failure.
Now I click on the desktop icons and nothing happens - no hour glass no starting of programs. The Icon dims.
I have made new icons and the same thing happens to the new ones.
The icons on any active window do not work either. The only way I can get ontrol panel to open is to switch to category view. The classic view icons do not work.
Programs do open from the start menu
Cannot open c: drive from MY Computer
Everything does work from windows exporer.
I just discovered that right clicking and choosing "open" or "run as" does work but not clicking the left ouse button.
I switched mice. Same result.
Any ideas? Please help!
