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.

Blank screen


A white blank screen? That sounds like the virus changed your display settings. Click Ctrl+Alt+Del to get to the task manager. Press and hold the Ctrl key plus the Alt Key then hit the Del key. When the task manager opens up Click File at the upper left corner of the window then select New Task RUN. When the create New Task Window opens type: explorer.exe and hit OK. See if it starts populating your desktop icons and shows the start menu and task bar. If so, the virus changed your settings.

To change your display background click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. When it opens select the Desktop tab and change the desktop background. Hopefully the white will go away.

You may have to get into Safe Mode to do the above if the virus disabled the Task Manager.

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.

Desktop apears but with no icons, no start, or menu bar?


Are you running Windows? If you are, the easiest way to fix this problem is to simultaneously hit Ctrl, Shift, Esc. The Task Manager will then pop up. Click "File" > "New Task (Run...)." When the run dialog appears, type "explorer" and then hit Enter. This will force the explorer to launch My Documents (the default folder explorer launches), which, in turn, forces your desktop and taskbar to load.
Thank you for using FixYa!

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.
