Thanks for the reply, let's see if I can explain what I've tried thus far.
Step 1 - 7 All my settings were correct as mentioned accpet I gave the
Networks Connections servie rights to interact with the desktop. I also ran
the SFC and it created no fix.
Step 8 - I do not have the NumMethods key mentioned more specificallly here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/269019
. I can not add it even when running
regedit as administrator.
Step 9 - All my settings were corect already
The remainder do not apply to me. I am missing all icons and I have no hang
I'm pretty stumped on this one. Is ther another way to hack at these
settings from the commandline, registry, etc..?
Thanks for the help,
