Can you get to the control panel? If not, can you boot up in safe mode and get to the control panel? From the control panel, the event viewer in Administrative Tools will tell you some of the errors, though it sounds like you don't know a lot about computers, maybe find a friend who can help you find the problem.

SOURCE: start menu toolbar does not appear on desktop

Here's a couple of things to try:

Press Cntl+Esc key. That should bring up the Start Menu. Maybe the menu is hidden on one of the sides, or top. If it is, click it and drag it back to the bottom. if this doesn't work:

This problem can also occur when you are infected with a virus that seems to be unreported on symantec or any of the other anti-virus resources I've found.

If you can get to task manager go to the Processes tab, and look for a process called 'SYSU.EXE'. If it's running, kill it.

Now, if your desktop suddenly returns to normal, then yes, you've got this virus. You're not out of the woods yet. There is probably a folder on your machine called 'C:Program Filesddm'. Delete that, of course. You'll probably also want to search your registry for the string 'ddm' and kill most of what you find. In particular the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/ddm, and anything under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run and/or Run once that refers to 'ddm' or 'sysu.exe'.

As usual, I'll include that this entire procedure is something you should undergo with great care, or leave to a computer guru friend if you're not comfortable with it.

No Icons show up


When you have your desktop up & displayed, click the right mouse button & it will bring up a menu. Hover your mouse above the "Arrange Icons By" option and it will bring up a sub menu. If the "Show Desktop Icons" option does not have a check mark to the left of it, that is your problem. If there is no check mark, navigate down to it and click on it with your left mouse button and that will make your icons display.
