Desk top icons

When I turn on my notebook it seams to boot up normal except I am unable to see my desk top icons and task bar. I am able to force them to come on by pressing ctl,alt,del and opening the task manager. When I do this the desk top icons and task bar come on for about 10 seconds than they disappear again. It will continue to turn on and off as long as I keep the task manager open.

Wont display the desk top


Try rebooting, tap F8 to get into the multi-boot options. Scroll down and choose "Last Known Good Configuration" windows should boot up normally. If you have made any hardware changes or if windows perfromed a corrupt update, that will require some additional help.

Boots up has desk top with out any icons not start not startup bar nothing just a blank desktop - nothing at all shows up on the desk top however the "cursor" is there but will not right click


just a quick thing to try is to press ctrl, alt, del and then select file -> new task. Type in explorer and click OK and see if this makes a difference.

Let me know if this starts it up, if it does there is probably something stopping the computer get back this stage and we can look t turning this off from startup if needed

Icons and Start tool bar disappearing every few seconds


Sounds like the explorer.exe process might be restarting. Open Task manager and keep refreshing the processes to see if explorer.exe disappears/re-appears.

This does not appear to be a display issue but more of a failure of explorer to load. Try pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del so it brings up task manager. Click file then go to new task and type Explorer and see if all of your icons and such show up. If they do you will want to install a spyware remover such as spybot search and destroy from safer-networking to check for any spyware that is preventing explorer from running. Also check your event viewer in safe mode and see if there are any errors when you boot.
