Restart computer, tap F8 immediately to get "Advanced mode", select Last known good configuration. Then uninstall the antivirus or disable it from the startup using msconfig. then you can restart the computer to find the issue has been resolved if it has been caused by the new program.

Changing the default shell (all users):

1) open regedit (start menu > run, and type in regedit)
2) go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon.
3) Change Shell from explorer.exe to the new shell path e.g C:\Litestep\litestep.exe
4) log out and log back in.

Changing the default shell (only current user):

1) open regedit (start menu > run, and type in regedit).
2) go to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon.
3) add a new string value (Edit > New > String Value) called shell. and set the value to the path of the new shell e.g C:\Litestep\litestep.exe.

XP SP3


You will have to boot from the disc and erase the whole Vista install to make this possible.

1) Turn off the computer with the XP disc inside then restart.

2) Pull up the boot menu at the first screen that pops up (Usually the PC brand logo). You can do this by pressing F12 on most computers but it may be different, it's usually written on the first screen if it is.

3) In the boot menu there are choices like, HDD, PXE, etcetera. Pick the one that says CD-Rom OR Optical Drive OR DVD-ROM.

4) It should start loading. Follow the steps and do a full format whn it asks.

BEWARE! This will erase ALL of your data.

Desktop and start menu is missing what can i do


Is the desktop there with no icons?

Did you put the mouse cursor down where the system tray should be to see if it was on Auto-Hide?

Did you try and right click on the mouse with the cursor anywhere on the desktop to see if a pop-up menu appeared?

Sometimes when computer games are played the game changes the resolution on the monitor putting all the icons off screen, so by right clicking on the mouse and left clicking on properties the display properties will come up and when you go into settings you can restore them.

If none of this applies to your situation then
On boot up keep pressing F8. This will give you options, pick last known good configuration. and boot up.

If that doesn't work, press F8 on boot up and choose safe mode.

If this doesn't work then the Operating System is corrupt and will have to be repaired.

Boot with winxp cd and choose repair console.
