I’m having problems with XP on my HP Pavilion laptop. I thought it might be a virus but I’ve done several scans and removed the annoying cookies that were found and that hasn’t helped.
When I boot up the computer, the icons appear for a short period of time and then they and the taskbar disappear completely. Makes it difficult to navigate, that’s for sure. I did a google search and discovered it might be a fragmentation problem so I’ll try a couple of things and if that doesn’t work I might have to buy an external hard drive so I can back everything up and reload Windows. Ugh.
I’m wondering if it’s worth taking to the Geek Squad or should I just deal with it myself? Well?
