Unable to locate component Explorer EXE

Oh dear, Explorer.exe is the front end.
This is the user shell, which we see as the familiar taskbar, desktop, and other user interface features. This process isn't as vital to the running of Windows as you might expect, and can be stopped (and restarted) from Task Manager, usually with no negative side effects on other applications. space.gif
Note: The explorer.exe file is located in the folder C:\Windows. In other cases, explorer.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm! Check this with Security Task Manager.

The wallpaper shows up but the icons don't show up. I cant get to any programs.

Does the start button work?  If not, run ctrl-alt-delete and go to processes.  Check for explorer.exe.  If it is not there, click on New Process and type EXACTLY explorer.exe and hit enter.
