:blackeye: On Win XP service pack 1... When windows starts up I go to my computer, I get that searching flash light for about 5 minutes. It cant find my C: or other drive directories and any other icon you see when you open my computer. The same thing happens for the first 5 minutes or so from start up... it just freezes if I go to "run, then browse (under look in) ' and when i go to Control Panel and look for local directeries in the explorer bar... it don't work. I thought the problem started after I reinstalled some drivers but I dont think that might be the problems because I went into system recovery and its the same. I did a virus scan a nothing. Does anyone know why at the first 5 minutes of start up I cant view any of my directories from my computer or explorer bar? Is this a known problem? Everything else works fine.
