DV,

I would go back, do an uninstall of the Desktop Manager and follow the FAQ directions explicitly. I had to do this same thing a while back.

DV,

Can you outline for us in bullet points what you have done? For us to help you, more data on your process would be helpful.

What desktop manager are you running?
Have you done a clean uninstall of the desktop manager? 1. Uninstall, 2. Search for any rim folders and delete 3. Search any registry entires and delete. 4. search for any rim device drivers and delete. 5. reboot.

The follow the faq referenced in this (in crazydude's responses).

good luck.
