  1. Doesn't work to reboot, or to put it in safe mode :(

    I dunno what's wrong! There's also no explorer.exe and I have to use the run command to access programs.


    Please help!

    Just guessing for now

    Desktop icons should not just disappear.Have you tried adding any ?
    You can do it here,but it's a right click option.
    You might have a Mouse problem.
    I don't list Explorer either.
    Have you tried,
    msconfig/Selective startup ?
    Post this Startup list.
    Have you tried a Restore ?
    What do you see on your Desktop ? Anything at all ?

    Thank you!

    Actually, my friend just sent me explorer.exe over MSN messenger and when I ran that, everything went back to normal!

    Thank you for your help though, I appreciate it :D

    You might wanna contact howard_hopkinso about that winlogon.exe running so much cpu usage - not good imo.
