Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
When I start my computer my desk top picture comes up and all my desktop icons and the windows start tool bar comes up. After a few seconds the icons and start toolbar blink off for a few seconds and then come back on. This happens for about 5-10 minutes and then the icons and the start tool bar don't come back on. During this the desk top picture stays on. If I click on the internet I can go on but the start tool bar will continue to blink on and off every few seconds until it doesn't come back on. If I click on any of the functions under the start button it will only stay on for the few seconds that the start tool bar is up, once it blinks off the function I have selected goes off also. Once the start button and icons go away the only way to do anything (if not already on the internet) is to press ctrl alt delete and log off and then log back on. However when logging back on it starts all over again.
Sounds like the explorer.exe process might be restarting. Open Task manager and keep refreshing the processes to see if explorer.exe disappears/re-appears.
