Original title: I cannot access any of the programs on my desktop via the icons. The entire desktop seems to be locked out.__However I can go the the lower right corner of the screen and "click" on the MS globe and I can access any program.__
If I reboot the computer and click on Internet Explorer Icon it will attempt to connect but doesn't. I'm left with a white screen that I CAN NOT "close"
However I can go to the "MS GLOBE" (lower right) and select Internet Explorer and it will connect immediately.
When I attempt to go back to the desktop it is completely locked out. None of the icons work nor can I drag any of them to a different location.
