Professionals out there. This has to be the freakiest problem I have experianced in XP Pro yet. I did a search on the internet and Microsoft's support site but found no support info to help me out. I have no "Power Schemes" so under power in the Screensaver section I have no way to adjust my monitor shutdown settings hardrive, standby, hibernate etc.. and under the save as and delete section I can type nothing. I do not know what happen, one day it was there and the next nothing! I am running a P4 machine that has the latest bios etc. BTW I checked all my bios settings made sure my APCS settings were enabled, but again nothing changed to cause the corruption as far as I know. I hpoe it does not mean a fresh install here b/c that would be very painful. Thanks in advance to those willing to provide me with support.
