Desktop and taskbar are being hidden by white screen


First you have to get administrator privileges (if you already do, Ignore this) but when starting up your computer get into recovery mode (Esc then F11, or whatever you have to do in the startup menu). If you have HP support on your computer, click the center panel and go into command prompt cmd prompt you cd to System32 folder on windows 7 (like C:\Windows\System32). you do that, then follow this order very carefully: copy cmd.exe cmd1.exe then rename sethc.exe sethc1.exe then rename cmd1.exe sethc.exe then get out of recovery mode, but typical people have NORMAL COMPUTERS. when you try to recover, hit cancel when asked about system restore. When the error message pops up, click on the details, open the text doc, and click save as. In that window, you browse to C:\Windows\System32 and basically do what you can do in the cmd prompt. copy cmd.exe, rename sethc.exe, then rename cmd.exe's copy to sethc.exe, then reboot normally. trigger sticky keys (hit shift many times) which brings up the command prompt. You can type explorer.exe into it to bring the taskbar up. click on the show desktop button

Edit these values and type the correct path of shell :
Shell = explorer.exe
Userinit=X:\windows\system32\userinit.exe

Log on to a networked computer.
Run Regedit.exe
Point your cursor to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

Exit from Registry
Restart Infected computer.

How do i fix boot on my laptop


Seems that adware ,spyware or a virus caused this.
I found a solution that could work from this forum :
http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/Windows-XP-Logs-Then-Immediately-Logs-Off-t15771.html

It's an advanced technique and you will need your Windows XP setup CD.

Boot using your winxp cd.
Enter recovery console.(press R on first screen)
at the command prompt go to

C:/windows/system32

next type:
Dir *.exe

If you find, it, type

copy userinit.exe wsaupdater.exe

Exit and reboot normally. You should now be able to logon.

Run regedit

Navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\

In the right pane, you should see

C:\WINDOWS\System32\wsaupdater.exe,

Change it so that it reads:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\userinit.exe

That should solve the problem

Desktop Error Message


Probably this is a spyware, use a good anti spyware or do the following:

Run Process Explorer (right click on task bar>task manager>Processes) and Kill the Following Processes:
wscript.exe
dxdlg.exe (kill this one first)

Run Autoruns and under logon tab, remove
C:\WINDOWS\system32\wscript.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\boot.vbs
Search for entries named wproxp and remove it

Remove the following files from your PC:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\dxdlg.exe
wproxp.exe (Most probably in your system32 or windows folder)
C:\WINDOWS\system32\boot.vbs
