Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
For a few seconds i still have my start menu and the desktop icons.. but eventually they disappeared!! They left me just y desktop screen saver. But somehow the task manager still works by pressing the ctrl alt del. i notice that explorer.exe is not on the process list.
Is it a valid version of Windows? If not the Authentic Windows validation update might have disabled normal function of the OS. Otherwise this may be serious damage due to spyware. Spyware software like SPYWAREDETECTOR are about $30 per year and work pretty well. Free ones are often 'get what you pay for' quality - crap. You may also have to use the windows disc to run a repair to fix the damage done once the spyware is gone. Or reinstall Windows.
