This is caused by the upper and lower filter registry in Windows. I've created a link for you. You have to access this link to download the rmvfltr.exe file. Regardless of the laptop brand you have, follow this instruction/s: It will work.
Access this link: http://tiny.cc/49KcC then it'll ask you to run or save. Download and save it to your desktop first. You'll have the RmvFltrs file on your desktop,
For Windows XP, double-click the file RmvFltrs.exe on the Windows Desktop (select unzip) to start the installation program.
For Windows Vista, right-click the RmvFltrs.exe file, and choose the "Run as Administrator" option.
** If a User Account Control dialog box displays the message, "An unidentified program wants access to your computer", click Allow.
(Select unzip if it asks you to do so.)
Follow the onscreen prompts to complete the installation.
Restart the Computer.
It should work after computer restarts.:)
Have you tried safe mode? You can access it by hitting F8 while the computer is booting up (I tend to press it at 1 second intervals, much faster and the computer gets annoyed :P) You'll get a menu that will let you pick safe mode.
If you can get at the desktop in safe mode then i would suggest shutting off all your start up programs (the list can be accessed by going to the start menu, selecting run, typing in "msconfig" and pressing enter). After those are shut off try rebooting back into normal mode and see if that works. If it does, then you know that a program starting up with the computer is causing the problem and just need to be singled out and removed.
Eight click on your desktop, Left click Personalize, On the left you will see Change Desktop Icons, click there and just check the icons you want displayed on your dektop. as for the programs that you dont have access to, goto my computer, then your c:\ drive, look for users and then look for the user name you were logged in with when you did the update you should then see a list of folder and one should be Desktop, go in there and the files should be stored in there.
If that doesnt get you a full solution then ask me with more specific program info and I will get you the specifc answers you need
1) go to the start panel and click run
2) then type msconfig into the run box to bring up the system configuration utility
3)on the far left there is a tab titled startup click on that to see everything that is launched at startup
Startup items- the process names
command- the program name or location
location- the registry location (irrelevant)
4) Locate the programs and uncheck them
5) click apply and it should not start at start up anymore
