Hi there
Get the task manager window up again, at the top left you will see "file" click on that and select "new task" in the box type explorer and click ok, this should bring all the desktop items up again.

Good luck and post back with the results

Hi Becky,

It sounds like you may have something suspicious going on in the background. As a start I would recommend downloading MalWareBytes AntiMalware (here)

Install the software, at the end of the installation it will ask you if you want to update and run the program. I would advise doing both and letting it preform a quick scan when it starts up.

Give that a shot, if you notice the program found a lot of suspicious entries, remove them and reboot..

Best of luck!

Don't have a an icon


Please give more details as to what is happening and when it happens?

If you are saying your computer boots up but there are No Icons on the desktop, then a virus or infection has hidden them or changed some settings.

Click the Ctrl/Alt/Del keys to start the Task Manager. Press and Hold the Ctrl and Alt keys then hit the Del key. When the task manager opens up click the Processes tab. Under the processes tab click the columnar heading Image Name to sort the items running in alphabetical order. Look to see if you see explorer.exe running under the image name. If you do click it one time to highlight it then click the END PROCESS button at the bottom right of the Task Manager Window.

Next click FILE at the very top left corner of the Task Manager Window and select New Task (Run..). When the Create New Task window pops up type in: explorer.exe and press OK. Your desktop icons and start menu should start populating.

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.

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

You need to run a virus scan because something might have caused this to happen.

Laptop got stuck!


You can end the Not Responding Application to task manager, just press ctrl+alt+del then click on task manager, or ctrl+shift+esc to go there directly, click on task that is not responding then click on End Task.

If you want to shutdown your computer that froze just press on the power button of your computer for 10 seconds or more to force it to shutdown.

Press CTRL+ESC
If your taskbar reappears, then it was just accidentaly been resized and repositioned somewhere
IF that doesnt work :
press CTRL+ALT+DEL to run task manager. On the File menu, select New Task (Run). Type in "explorer" and press OK.

My icons will not come on my desktop


This maybe due to the "explorer.exe" process not running. Try pressing ctrl-alt-del, to start the task manager then select the "processes" tab and click on "file". In the "create new task" window type "explorer.exe" (without quotes) & click OK. Your desktop icons should magically appear!
