Problems after updating Windows XP
I'm not quite sure what update I just did on my Windows XP, but it was one of
the automatic ones. After the update completed, the taskbar looks like the
classic view. I changed it to the XP taskbar, but it didn't change. I also
have no icons in the start-up area. Everything looks like Windows 98. The
computer is also having problems starting up and shutting down. It doesn't
shut down w/o unplugging it, and most of the time it doesn't start back up
without many attempts. Both of my computers are having this problem, and a
few people that I know are having the same problem. If anyone has any
suggestions or reasons behind this, please let me know. Thanks!
