No Programs run ... just all desktop items show & then endless hourglass

Post by acammacahon on Mon May 09, 2011 3:05 pm

Hi,

I have this problem: when I start my computer it boots up (slowly) and shows all my desktop items as well as all the programs on the drop down menus. But if I select one of these, if I try to run a program or click a desktop item, I just get an hourglass, on and on and on.

I have opened in Safe mode w/ the cmd option and have been trying to run chkdsk /F; but this never seems to work --
chkdsk runs in the OS and reports problems but the cmd chkdsk with the /F parameter never takes effect and no drive fix ever occurs.

Maybe I am barking up the wrong tree ...? Maybe I have a different problem than I think, calling for a different solution?
