Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
When I boot up my computer (Dell 4600C) it goes through the normal process and then displays the profiles we have on the system. When I choose one of the profiles to work under it states "loading personal profiles" and then the screen saver background comes up but that is it. There are no icons being displayed nor a menu bar at the bottom of the the screen. I can't get to any of the menus (control panel, programs, etc, etc). Any idea what is going on with my computer?
Hit control-alt-delete, then bring up the "file " menu, and look for a "new task" or "run" command.
at the "run" command, type "explorer"

The most probable reason is a virus infection that has corrupted the "Explorer.exe"... Try booting form a different profile n see if it helps... If it doesn't then this is what you need to do... Start up the system n immediately start tapping F8 key... this brings up a menu from which select the safe mode... after booting in the safe mode u'll see the windows albeit a toned down one... then go to start>all programs>accesories>system tools>system restore... this brings up the restore window.. go ahead n restore ur PC to an earlier time when the system was working well... it's a simple procedure but here is the tricy part... if this does resolve ur issue the infection would still be there so for that u need to do a virus scan... if u already have a antivirus installed you need to update the software n then run the scan n if u dont have one installed download a free one from the link i'm providing... update that too n scan ur system...
Lemme know how it goes mate :-)
