When I click on these from "start" They briefly appear, then dissapear, and my desktop is empty for a moment, then everything reappears. Does any one know how I can remedy this. My knowledge of computers is.......scant.

I assume you have already rebooted, run spybot and adaware? What virus protection do you run? How recent are your definitions?

Your explorer.exe is crashing. You may want to put a shortcut to them on your desktop and see if it still happens.

I am running spybot, adaware and AVG antivirus all newly updated. I made a desktop shortcut and get the same results when I click on this.

I restored to an earlier date and everything is kosher now. I guess my knowledge is now somewhat less scant.
