Not really a problem, at least as far as I can tell, but when I boot up my computer, with XP Home, I no longer get the "Welcome" screen at startup. I get the black XP Home screen and then my monitor goes black just long enough for it to go in power save mode for maybe a second before the Windows boot song and the desktop appear at the same time. Don't know when exactly this started, but it's only been a day or two. Other details. Ran Norton Virus Scan, with latest updates, no problem. Use latest Zone Alarm Pro. Loaded the latest Windows updates on Thursday, now Saturday, could this be the problem? Loaded the latest Beta version of Opera yesterday. No other downloads or installations. While no problem is showing up, this is making me wonder what caused it. My computer is still loading at normal speed and no other problems have surfaced. Should I be worried? Now I have restored back to before the updates and Opera Beta, and I get a fraction of a second of the Welcome screen and then the desktop comes up. There is a message box that flashes to fast for me to read.
