Lost icons from desktop

For your problem, I can easily tackle it if a had enough information on the problem as to what happened or what caused the problem But here is a solution for you...... Switch on your computer and leave it to load all other programs, do not disturb it until all other programs have been loaded and are running. Then at this point, according to your problem, i presume that this is where you do not see the desktop icons right? This is where you press Ctrl + Alt + Del, this will display the Task Manager on your screen. Inside the task manager, click on processes and the click on File and then New Task. Inside new task, type the following EXPLORER.EXE

That is it...... thank you i hope that helped

Dell D610 nothing but background image


The laptop seems to have a problem with explorer not loading properly (this is the program which loads up the taskbar, icons etc)

Hold down Ctrl, Alt and press the delete key. Dependent on the operating system it will either go to list or load up Task Manager, ether way you need Task Manager.

When Task Manager loads up in the top left corner of the window you will see File, click on that and select New Task (run), click on that and in the box type explorer and click OK, The desktop should now load up.

After that make sure you perform a system restore by clicking on the start menu, accessories, system tools, system restore and take the laptop back to a time before this happened.

Show no desktop

Click CTRL+ALT+DEL at the same time. A task manager will pop-up (if needed, click on START TASK MANAGER). Go to FILE > NEW TASK (RUN) and type in EXPLORER. That should start it.
If this helps, please rate. If not, write back. Thank you.

Follow the below steps to straighten this issue :

* This should bring up the WINDOWS TASK MANAGER.
*Click on NEW TASK which is on the bottom right corner on the TASK MANAGER.
*This should bring up CREATE NEW TASK window, Type in "explorer.exe" and press ok....

This should bring back your desktop screen.

Task Manager Disabled

Try using Ctrl+Shift+Escape This should open the task manager directly. If it does not check that C:\windows\system32\taskmgr.exe exists.

No Start menu when logging on to my Compaq Armada E500 Laptop

Sounds like Explorer is having an issue loading.
Unfortunatly there are a miriad of possibilities that can cause it.

So try this and see what happens.
Do the CTRL-ALT-DELETE (aka three finger salute)
Goto Applications tab and select NEW TASK
Type EXPOLORER.exe and oress enter.

Explorer (AKA the desktop) should pop up, or give an error.

If you get an error then post back what it says. If it brings up the desktop post back with that result and we can move on from that point.
