A friend has a 3-year old Dell WinXP with SP2 and he is experiencing 2 problems.
First a System32 window pops-up just after loging in to any of the 4 user accounts(all accounts have admin priviliges) This window displays the file contents of the System 32 folder, and can be closed. It's annoying as hell.
Secondly, IE only works in one user account. All accounts have the IE icon. I'll get the specific error message later today and post back. I had the owner create another user account just to see if IE would work in it, but no joy.
