    HI ! Tis i again ! Just wondering... when i am on my desk-top and i click a short-cut to go somewhere,some of the other icons on the desk-top dissapear for a few seconds while the computer is trying to load the thing i have selected. Is this normal ? It is only ever the icons on the left of the screen that dissapear .
    Also ,sometimes when i empty the bin using the desk-top short-cut ....i return to the desk-top and all the icons change into something that looks like a file symbol....and then back to the normal ones !...again is this normal ?
    Thanks for the help !;) :confused:

    It won't be doing any damage, what are your system specs?

    Marge why haven't you got more memory. I thought we talked about this. :p
    Seriously, get another 128mb. I reckon this issue will then disappear. Plus you'll luv the new feel to xp.

    Yes Marge - as I recall we did suggest that more memory would help with some of your issues. This would almost certainly be one of them.
