Thank you for the question,will try and help you.
please do a full system scan for viruses etc,pl do update the antivirus before u scan and shut down all un required programmes..
restart after the scan is done then try this first:
you can do system restore back to a point where things were working well,remeber that doing this will make your system back in time hence save all important data,ideally on thumb drive/cd
system restore will be listed as accesories in system tools in XP
if problem still recurs try this:

Cannot see desktop


Hi Not sure if you mean no display or just missing start menu, if former doe you have a light on the monitor, amber means no signal from PC, check the vga/dvi cable is secure or change for another if you have one, if green after boot do you see any display on start up then it goes blank (try starting in safe mode to see if you get the display.


If the later option, can see the screen but no task bar and start button at the bottom of the screen try pressing the Windows key on the keyboard, this should bring up the menu option.

Start Menu And Desktop Icons Are Gone The start menu and desktop icons are gone. When I right click on the desktop nothing happens. I have to do things with the task manager only! How do I get them...


Heya

First of all Start up menu and desktop icon doesn't appears because explorer.exe doesn't loads properly which is a system component file mandatory for the computer to load...Now the solution:-

Press CTRL+ALT+DEL simultaneously ONLY when you don't see any icons or the start up menu
Windows TASK MANAGER will appear.
Now click on FILE top left corner>>>NEW>>Type explorer.exe>>Click OK or enter

You will be able to see all the icons

Now the Software Counterfeiting problem..This happens when your copy of windows doesn't pass the Genuine test..Now this doesn't mean that the copy which your using is not genuine.Even if its not genuine i.e. pirated..there's a common solution for it.
Click on the following link to download and install WGA remover which will remove the Software Counterfeiting problem..

Thanks & Regards

You should be able to drag your start menu around. Try right clicking on it and there should be a pop up menu, one of the choices should be lock task bar uncheck it then you should be able to move the bar back to your liking.
