Nah, all this started when I updated nvidia drivers to their latest.
Those latest drivers caused problems with my themes, like changing them back to default windoze icons on desktop.
I tried with nvidia update file, so checked system for any problems with them, found they removed tabs after install, hung a lot of graphically minded appz etc..NEthing using high resolution graphics, got skooted by new drivers. So went back to latest nvidia drivers at windows updates.
Drivers performed better, icons returned to aquarium theme and no more hung graphic apps.
Well attachment stayed same, as in tabs still gone.
Have to look into it at M$ knowledge database, thanks for a lead
Well guess what! I found out what the problem is and what caused it
I bought a PC mag the other day which gave me a free registered version of magic tweak V1.94.
I did a roll back racking my sawdust encrusted grey matter area of my brain and sort when was it o.k. and when it went like this, went through magic tweak and found by default it had in control panel ll the screen saver, device manager and the file system button disabelled by default.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
