Visual Studio .NET - Won't allow me to create new project

I am using VS.NET 2003... have been for some time without major problems

Now, when I create a new project, then click on the project in the Start Page to open it, absolutely nothing happens.  In the past, it wold show me a blank Form with which I could start working immediately.  Now I get nothing.  It just stays on the start screen.  

How can I get this to start displaying a blank form again?

Thanks!

When you create the new project, select the type, and give it a name, does it take you to the new, blank design window?

Did you recently change your anti-virus status?  VS runs a script at project create time that some AV packages consider suspicious.  MacAfee does, but pops a window asking what to do.

did any of your workspace files unknowingly get changed to readonly?

 Hello,
  Maybe some files are damaged. You should try to reinstall VS.NET.

Only if its a Windows application. What type of project did you choose?

Is there a way I can attach a screen-shot to this post?

No. But if you can put it on some accessible URL, you can post a link to it. Its also not legal to post e-mail IDs on questions here, so bad luck :-(

You can of course, tell us what project-type you chose? (e.g., Visual C# Project - Console Application)

by any chance, are you clicking on a shortcut to an existing solution/project?
I found that when you click on a shortcut to a solution, it does go directly into the projects, without a startup page. However if you click the actual visual studio icon from the start menu, the VS goes into the startup page.

I also verified on the startup page that there is no checkbox on the startup page that indicates "dont show me this page again" So there is no chance of you doing that way.

I wonder whether there could be any other options settings where the startup page can be disabled, elsewhere.

I will still keep on the lookout for this..

Well, sometimes it just takes someone to ask the obvious questions... I'll split the points between the two people who asked what type of application I am choosing... turned out I wasn't choosing an application at all.  Sorry for the brain-fart everyone!

I guess you wanted to split between cookre and me? You ended up splitting it between two of my comments. You can have this re-opened from the moderators and split it between him and me. Also make sure you give it a correct grade ;-) a grade B is given not when the question is too easy, but when the experts did not answer it completely (but gave you some info or a link through which you were able to find out the answer after some hard work from your side).
