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.

After bootup only Ease of Access and Shut Down buttons visible


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.

When the task manager opens up click the Processes tab. You can click the Image Name column to get them in alphabetical order. Look for explore.exe, if you see it listed click it once to highlight it then click the End 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 left and select the option New Task (Run). When the Create New Task window opens type: explorer.exe and press OK. Your items will start populating and appearing on the desktop.

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

Hi micochereami,

You can fix this issue by restarting the "explorer.exe" services. To restart the explorer.exe service, please perform the steps given below.

  1. Right click on the Taskbar and click the "Task Manager" to open it. (You can also press "Alt+Ctrl+Del" or "Ctrl+Shift+Esc" to open the Task Manager.)
  2. In the Task Manager window, please click the "Process" tab.
  3. In the Process tab, locate the "explorer.exe" process.
  4. Once you have located the "explorer.exe" process, please right click and select the "End Process" option.
  5. Then, please click the "File" option in the Task Manager window and select the "New task (Run..)" option.
  6. Then, in the Create New Task window, please type "explorer.exe" and press the Enter Key.
  7. This should fix the issue.
Good Luck!

Please post if you have any questions or require further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Says its printing but it wont print


Open up your print queue. Cancel All jobs.

Go to the start menu and either click on, or search for cmd. This will open the command window. You also need to open your task manager.

In the task manager, search for a process called spoolsv.exe, or if that doesn't exist, find a process with "spool" in the name. This is your print spooling process. Right click the process, and end it. You can close the task manager now.

Next, go to the command prompt. Type "net start spooler" without the quotes, and hit enter. This should restart your spooling process. Close the command window, and try to print.

If this doesn't work, you should check to make sure you're printing to the correct printer. If it doesnt solve the problem, uninstall your current printer (you may have to end the spoolsv.exe process again), and reinstall the drivers for your particular model, which you can find at the manufacturers website.

Run as not working


Unfortunately XP Pro doesn't have a fully functional Run As command. If you try and make a request for certain system functions it will always authenticate as the current explorer user. The solution is rather odd and cumbersome. Say I was logged into Arthur but wanted to run control panel as Keech then I would follow the directions below.
1. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\ and Run As cmd.exe as Keech 2. Open Task Manager and kill the process explorer.exe 3. In your command window type C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe and press enter 4. Open control panel normally
5. All done!

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!
