What is WinXP?


When I go to use Windows Explorer to maipulate files I see the tree structure of the disk, if I move the mouse to click on a file or subdirectory the whole screen blanks out for a second and when it comes back Windows Explorer is gone and I'm back to the normal desktop. I've tried rebooting, reinstalled windows (as an upgrade, not wiping everything). Still get the same thing. I'd like to try and reinstall the file manager without having to do a clean reinstall of windows.

Disable the Hidden function for the Windows Explorer properties.
