  1. Hi folks

    My computer is dying :confused:

    the conditions is this

    I'm manage to still boots my computer into windows

    as soon as i type my password to enter into my windows

    it's loaded

    but nothing is there, the whole screen is just only background with no Icons, and the Bottom Bars, simply only my wallpaper

    before this happens i was in taskmanager and stopping some program and i think i terminate a wrong one. and after i restart my computer it's left only my wallpaper.

    i can get into safe-mode but there wasn't any icons and bottom bars as well.


    somebody help me please :(

    You may well have serious trojans/worms/virii:

    Bring up Task Manager (ctrl+alt+del) and click File, new task (run), and enter 'C:\windows\explorer' (no quotes).

    This should run Windows explorer for you.

    You can then go to c:\Windows\System32\Restore and try to run rstrui.exe to bring up the System Restore page and try to restore to a few days ago (before this problem).

    If that is successful, then post a HijackThis Log and ask momok for help cleaning your comp.

    There are times, and this is one, where I just say;

    '0 write and reinstall!'.
