    I just installed a new driver set on my dell inspiron 9300 and now it seems everything is fubar.

    I uninsatalled the old drivers, rebooted, ran driver cleaaner and the cab cleaner, rebooted, installed new driver, rebooted, just like you're suppose too.

    But after the last reboot I go to my login screen hit ok and it takes about 3 mins to "load settings" then when it's done with that, all I see is my wallpaper and no icons, start bar, etc.

    I ctrl alt del and try and run firefox: no connection, then I hit the windows key and after 5 mins it pops up and slowly all of my desktop icons start to load up. Ok, it now takes 20 mins for me to get my computer started up. Also I can't connect to the internet still.

    system restore back to before you installed the drivers.
