    You might have to explain that a bit more. What happens when you open the control panel? What are the other 'links'?

    I open control panel and get like Apperance and Themes, Network Internet Connections, Add or Remove Programs, and so on, and lets say i click on Apperance and Themes i get one more page witch has things such as Change the computer's theme, change the desktop backround, Choose a screensaver, and Change the screen resoultion, lets say i clcik on choose a screensaver i get nothing (i also get nothing if i click on display) and i get that with almost everything, there3 are several things i can open but most of it doesnt work.
     
  4. Hey I had that problem....try using classic view, or right clicking on the "link" which i like to call an "icon" and click open.....hopes this helps...o yeah have you restarted lately? I think its funny...people make me come to there house cause something isn't workin and I restart it and it works.....strange eh?;)

    If you have not made many changes you could try 'system restore'.

    OK out with the dumb questions. Can you get to 'display properties' right clicking on the desktop & choosing properties?
