Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Please help me resolve thisWhy can't I see any icons my desktop. I can reboot in Safe Mode but there are 2 error messages that come up. I realise what I've done as I switched the machine off during a system restore in Safe Mode. I also tried to delete Internet Explorer from add and remove programs as I had my computer scammed and they put a block on my internet service. Is there anyway I can bypass startup so that I can get my desktop back pls? A

On the safe mode page look for the "last known good configuration"
Should work if it doesn't it may be a a lost cause service pack 3 does this a lot especaily on media centre computers

If you have access to another internet connected computer, go to www.malwarebytes.com and download their free Anti-Malware software. Save it to some folder, call it export, for example.
Go to www.atribune.org and download the free ATF cleaner and save it to the same folder.
Go to this link and download Hijack this and save it to the same folder.
Write these three files onto a cd.
Install them onto your computer, and without rebooting, run a scan of your system with MBAM. Fix any problems it detects. Run the ATF cleaner to clean out your temp files and browser cache.
Then see if you can update the MBAM software.
If you can go online, immediately go to windows update and apply all critical and security updates for your system that it offers.
Update your Antivirus software. If you don't have AV, download and install Avira AntiVir free from here, & update the definitions.
Now reboot your computer and run a complete scan with your updated antivirus software. Let it fix any problems it detects.
If you're still having problems, run a scan with Hijack This. Don't fix anything, just save a logfile and report back with the results...
Also please consult this valuable link.
I hope this information allow you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please reply with a comment to this thread.

So you really don't want to format and must have your data's. May i ask you one thing,have you ever created an system restore point...if so you can do the trick. Hw to acess System restore=> start->All programs->Accessories->system tools.And this actually roll-back to your good configuration setting,by this you won't loss any data's....but make sure you do it safe.Do not need to fear that it will damage the OS.Please try on.Click the below links for further deatils:

Testimonial: "Thanks, this is helpful, but it worked good after restarting the computer, donnu why, it didn't work before after restarting... Still, this is helpful"
Assume you are using Windows XP..
Go to My Computer >C Drive (your hard drive icon)>open programmes, find the Internet explorer folder, open it and right click on the "iexplore" icon and create shortcut..it will then prompt you to place the shortcut on the desktop..windows Vista is virtually the same
