To enable missing 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

    What if Explorer.exe just doesn't even start, and so you don't have Right Click Ability?

After I boot up my computer all that brings is just a by screen saver with nothing else no icons or anything. Any help would be great.


For some reason it seems that explorer.exe isn't start. I would start by rebooting into safemode. After the bios boot screen, but before the windows loading screen repeatedly press F8 to bring up a menu. Try safe mode with networking first and run an anti-virus scanner. Usually virii and other malware tend to do this.

Screen saver will not come on


It sounds like you have some program running in the background that is preventing your screen saver from showing. This could be a virus scan, or some other program you unknowingly downloaded from the internet....(spyware, etc). Check to make sure nothing is running in background and do a full scan for virus, spyware, etc.

I need to restore icons on desktop, tried to do so, nothing works. The screen saver has covered the entire desktop face. cannot remove it.


I am not sure that the screen saver is making problems.
Screen savers turn on after at least one minute of no activity, and turn off when you move your mouse or press a button on your keyboard.

Start your PC in 'SAFE MODE' . Are there your desktop icons?
Disable or uninstall the screen saver and and restart in 'Normal mode'.

Regards.

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.
