First of all I am new to this forum. If this topic has already been covered, someplease link me to it. I did do a search before I posted this. Ok, I have a laptop, celeron 2.2 mhz. I am running Windows XP Pro. One day I started it up and all of the icons on my desktop show up as "the white unloadable icons". Then when I go to start > programs, they show up the same way. I hope I am explaining this right. Thanks for your help.
