    do one thing if you have any antispywares in your pc install that and scan your system in the safe mode .... you will get detected with the spy delete that one then you will get the icons ....


    you must too much patient for this and all because it takes more time if you want that to do in short mean while means you must format the drive in which the operating system is installed and you can reinstall the operating system from the Boot disk ...

    before that once you try going to safe mode(you can go to safe mode by keep pressing F8 at the time of booting ) in safe mode go to start>accessories>system tools >system restore ...

    restore to some date previously after restoration is complete it will work but after that you scan your pc once for virus and spywares...

Hi,

Try this:

Press Ctrl+Alt+Del and choose file >>> New task.

Type explorer.exe and hit enter. You should get your icons back. YOu may then have to try a system restore or maybe backup your data and re-install OS. you may try a repair install using the XP CD.


Let me know if you need additional info

The recycle bin icon has disappeared from the desktop.Can you help?


Hello

Firstly, what operating system are you using? I am going to give you steps to fix this in both xp and vista.

Windows XP:
  1. Right click any blank area of your desktop. In the menu that comes up, click on “Properties.”
  2. Step 2 Click on the “Desktop” tab, and then click on the “Customize Desktop” button.
  3. Step 3 On the “General” tab, you will see a field with some standard desktop icons. Click on the “recycle bin” icon and then click on “Restore Default.” Click “OK,” and then “Apply,” and finally “OK” again. You should see your recycle bin back in its spot on your desktop. If your recycle bin is still not appearing on your desktop, try the next steps.
  4. Step 4 Right click a blank area of your task bar, point to “Toolbars,” and then click on “Desktop.”
  5. Step 5 Click on the double carets (>>) next to “Desktop” on your taskbar. Look for your recycle bin in the menu that comes up.
  6. Step 6 Drag the recycle bin from the menu to your desktop by clicking on it with your mouse, holding the mouse button down, and moving it to the desktop.
Windows Vista:

First, right-click on the Desktop and select Personalize. In the dialog box on the right hand side, there should be an option called Change desktop icons.
change-desktop-icons-thumb.png
On the Change desktop icons dialog box, go ahead and check the Recycle Bin box to add that back to your desktop. You’ll notice that there is a Full Recycle Bin and Empty Recycle Bin icon.
restore-recycle-bin-thumb.png
If you click Apply, your icon should now be back on the desktop.


Really hope this can be of help.

Kind regards
Andrea

My windows display only wallpaper


What happens when you press the windows key at the bottom left of your keyboard?

What happens when you move your mouse to the bottom of the screeen?

If nothing, can you get to the task manager? Press Cttl-Alt-Delete and choose task manager

Under process close explorer.exe
Then under the Applications tab click new task
type in explorer.exe

When booting into Windows press the F8 key and select restore to last known good configuration.

If that does not fix it... then you need to renboot using your Windows XP Installation CD and select repair system

If this has been of help to you please remember to vote kindly.
