Default right click "my computer" > properties....NOTHING!

so when I right click my "my computer" icon, and select "properties," nothing happens.

I see the hour glass turn for a few moments, but after that....nothing comes up.........as if I didnt' do anything.

I then try to go there through the control panel, but same thing....

other icons work well.

and when I restart or shut down, it gives me a box w/ a "program that is not responding" message.

anybody know what is wrong? new virus? everything is already updated on my pc....

this is xp home

Go to Device Manager and see if you have any conflicts.

Sorry, it's hard to resist those sometimes. Here's a couple shots in the shadows. Try to think of what you did recently. Any new hardware or drivers? Disable onboard peripherals, if equipped, one by one, with reboots between to check on it. If it still doesn't come up, take out all PCI cards but the NIC or modem, and try again.

I have been known to make mistakes...from time to time. I could be totally off.
