  1. My Task bar and everything on my desktop is gone. I tried going to Task manager>New task and running explorer.exe. But a prompt shows up saying " please insert disk into D drive " but now when i try to run it nothing happens.I have also tried going through Safe mode and doing System Restore but that had no effect. Any advice would be appreciated.

    it is a good start to do this:
    1. run task manager and go to file, new task.
    2. in the prompt write 'cmd' and press enter.
    3. in command prompt write: sfc /scannow
    4. you'll be asked for your xp cd, have it ready.
    good luck.
