    I have just installed XP Sp2 after a clean full format and reinstall of XP Pro and I am having troubles with the open/save dialog box in all Windows Programs, including just opening My Computer.

    The problem is that nothing is happening, the open/save dialog box comes up but when I click on the button for the drop down menu to drop down and let me select where I want to go, nothing happens. Sometimes if I get frustrated and go for a coffee or something then it might be opened up. If I try to open My Computer it opens but the searching thing comes up looking for my drives.

    The weirdest thing is that Total Commander shows everything on my computer perfectly fine.

    Any help or advice would be appreciated
