My friend has a computer and his desktop is not showing up on his computer. He can only access application through the task manager and selecting run. We have tried using msconfig to fix it. We have tried all three start up options and tried enabling and disabling everything but can't get it to work. The task bar and the start menu are not showing either.

I would try a factory restore
Hope this helps
