Hello. Imma try and be fast here. This may be the wrong board, but I need serious help. I am in a big doo doo hole.


Heres the problem. i have no desktop. Literally I have no desktop. Its just a blank blue screen. No icond, taskbar nor nothing. And the only way I got the Internet Explorer was by going to "ATL+CONTROL+DELETE" and bring up the "Windows Task Manager" and them going to "File", "newTaskRun" and search for Internetexplorer exe file. I need help bad.


What can i do to bring my desktop back. BTW, im using Windows XP Pro.

Open the task manageer w/ Ctrl+Alt+Del and go to New Task. Try running "explorer.exe"

If that doesnt load it up, Go to new task and run "sfc /scannow" to reload all system files (have XP CD Ready)

If that doesnt work, reinstall XP

I get that problem sometimes while leaving my computer on for long periods of time.

The fix?

First, try ALT+TAB to another program open.

If that doesn't work, press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC and select new task.
In the windows folder of your C: drive open up explorer.exe

If that doesn't work, reboot.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
