Hey Guys, this problem is driving me insane.....first time i've seen this After turnin on my laptop today, my win xp home says it has restored a previous registry because of an error. This is not the first time i've gotten this...the last time my icons suddenly lost their associations and i had to get some fixes to restore it. So anyway, when i start my IE 6 SP2, i can browse,but it just wont accept any inputs into any textbox's!!! I click on the textbox and start typing but nothing appears. I have Mozilla and it works fine... Also, when i open the the About in Help of IE...it gives me a Error:96 Unspecified Error. I also have a problem with my Norton where it pops up a Security Alert window but there is nothing displayed in it.I have installed another antivirus software and it detected nothing at all. It's as though something is blocking windows from displaying stuff. Another small problem is, on my taskbar, i enable it to display the speaker and LAN Connection but when the laptop starts, nothing appears, i have to go again to the control panel and audio devices and check the box to display the speaker icon on the taskbar and suddenly, together with the speaker icon, the LAN icon appears too. I even tried reinstalling Service Pack 2, and nothing works. Anyone out there know anything? Been in the same situation??? I desperately need help, thanks in advance!
