This is how my gateway computer, running window XP home edition, looks like when it is running. The background is all white with no back ground image, and filled with error messages.I am still able to run other program but they speed up and slow down because something is activating my hard drive.And, the hour glass is constantly been display on the screen. I can’t add or remove programs my computer system tasks. I can’t run desktop recovery. I can’t update windows xp because it tells me that the program is incompatible. I can’t change the Theme or desktop settings.
