Hello everyone, So I have this problem which happened only twice so far since I formatted and reinstalled winxp about three weeks ago. Suddenly the computer would start reacting wirdly to muse clicks; I can't even explain all of the phenomena other than everything just goes crazy - the right mouse button brings out the menu but pressing items or double clicking other items doesn't work - they just don't respond. The "start" from the start button disappears and only a green rectangle remains. When I try ctrl alt del it brings out an error message (which unfortunately I can't recall what it said). Than I try to shut the PC down and it goes all graphically awry and transparent and doesn't really turn the computer off. I know the explanation is vague, but it was all so fast and vague that's all I can describe from memory... Please help. Thanks in advance. You're doing an awesome job in this community. Max.
