I have a 4 year old Dell desktop with XP SP3 and I use TI 9. Recently, I did a retore and it seemed to work as it should. After the restore, I went my merry way and everything seemed to be okay. I have a new problem (one week later) and I'm not even sure if it is related to TI. When I bootup the computer and select myself as the user (with admin rights), the computer freezes shortly after that. My wallpaper appears and the frame for the taskbar appears - but there are no icons on the desktop and everything stops. The taskbar is empty I suppose I can try the restore again, but does anyone have any ideas as to what could be causing this? BTW, there is no hidden partition - the harddrive was replaced several years ago and XP was reinstalled.
