Lost start button and icons


Are you saying there are no icons on yourdesktop and the start menu is missing? If so try this: Click Ctrl+Alt+Del to get the task manager to come up. Press andHold each key (Ctrl+Alt) until you hit the Del key, then you can release them.

When the task manager opens up click the Processes tab. You can click theImage Name column to get them in alphabetical order. Look forexplore.exe, if you see it listed click it once to highlight it then click theEnd Process button at the bottom right portion of the task manager window.

Next click File at the very top portion of the task manager window on the leftand select the option New Task (Run). When the Create New Task window openstype: explorer.exe and press OK. Your items will start populating andappearing on the desktop.

Acer 5315 not working after I log on!!!


There are a couple of different ways you may have lost your icons. They could have disappeared when you installed a certain program or even when you upgraded to a new operating system.
To enable those icons and more, right click on your desktop and choose Properties. Click on the Desktop tab and hit the Customize Desktop button. Next, under the General tab, check off any of the icons you want to appear on your desktop.
Once you do that, they will all be returned to your desktop in full view. You can choose from the icons of My Documents, My Computer, My Network Places and Internet Explorer. Now, on the other hand, you may want to take some of those icons off your desktop. If that's the case, just uncheck them and they will be out of your way.
