Yes I did.

But get this (it is typical MS). For grins I ran Windows update. It had ONE security update for IE8. Installed and restarted. Amazing..........things work now.

I have been in IT for years and there are things that happen that make you go HUMMMM. This is one

Thanks for the suggestions! Have a good weekend!

I had this exact same problem. I scoured the web for a while and found nothing useful, including this thread. What finally worked was this: I opened the task manager, went to processes, and ended the explorer.exe process. I then re-started explorer manually by going to File -> New Process -> type "explorer" (without quotes) in the field -> hit Ok. After this everything worked normally.

The only quirk I cannot solve is that I see no apps on my task bar. ANd when I minimize a window it does not go to the task bar as it should. It look like a small minimized window. See attached snip.[IMG]file:///C:/Users/Tim/Desktop/Web%20Sites/Capture.JPG[/IMG]

Any ideas?

It's an explorer.exe problem

Just start the Task Manager (Cntr/Alt/Del) and end "explorer.exe" from the processes. Then go back to applications, click on New Task, and type in "explorer.exe"
