I can click the desktop and "arrange icons" and choose any method (name, date, etc) and it will do that, but I can't move them myself by dragging.
"Auto arrange" is NOT ticked.
I can open a folder and drag that around, or any program window, but I can't drag any file or folder icons inside it.
I can r-click to create a folder or shortcut. I can select any icon and delete it.
Just can't move the **** things.
Just ran the "Windows2000-UURollup" 9b, but I have installed that on another PC recently with no such problem.
PS: booted in safe mode, still can't move icons.
Now something else -- opening the control panel "Add/remove programs" does not display a list of programs. Just an empty box
I've spent a while today trying to get a Java program running -- Kindle previewer. I installed and uninstalled it, and Java, a few times.
So it looks like I've damaged Windows in the process.
I've got an SP4 install disk, can I use that to repair install?
Never done that before, so excuse the naivety. If it will work and preferably leave my apps installed I will give it a try.
