  1. Thanks for your helpful suggestions. Fireryone, that was some amazing stuff you put out there. I would never have figured out on my own how to do what you outlined. I downloaded a copy of Hiren's Boot CD at the suggestion of someone else. It apparently contains a whole host of really neat workarounds. Unfortuntely, the download was compressed in something with a .uha file extension and I couldn't find a program to uncompress the applications. At the end of the day, I tried to start the computer in safe mode and when i did, everything seemed back to normal, so I took a chance and rebooted

  5. By the way, I should have indicated in my prior post that I am using the most current version of CCleaner, which I just downloaded last night.
  6. I just ran the "issues" tool within CCleaner and wiped out a bunch of registry entries. I did this while logged in not under my own account, but under my daughter's XP account. When I finished, I realized that I am unable to switch between users anymore. When I click "log off" under the start menu, the dialog box is now transparent and does not contain words. I can see the 2 buttons, (one of which is used when the user wants to "logoff" and the other is for "switch user"). Although there are no labels associated with the buttons, I am familiar with the dialog box from memory. If I click "switc
