Spyware and temp file overload usually are to blame here.

Look and install these two applications:
ccleaner (www.ccleaner.com)
Spy-Bot Seek and Destroy www.majorgeeks.com

Make sure to close all programs specially anti-virus programs before you install them. Then run them in SAFE MODE.

How to enter safe mode:
Reboot your PC and RIGHT AFTER your PC startup BIOS logo and before Windows kicks in tap the F8 key and a Startup Menu should appear, use your arrow keys to select SAFE MODE and run the above applications. Clean any temp files and clear out any spyware.

Hope That Helps!

I set my admin account to limited user and i cant open it anymore..please help to retrieve this user account.thank you..


i assume you are using Windows XP.
try log off and login as "Administrator", if you remember the password. Try blank password first. if it doesn't show in the list, press Ctrl-Alt-Del twice and type it in.
if no joy, you can download this iso, burn it onto CDR as disk image, not data.
restart and boot from this CD, then you have the chance to change/reset/blank any user's password. but take care not to do other thing. follow the author's instructions.
good luck!

Only my desktop picture is there when turned on nothing else


Hi.
Based on the information you have provided, it seems that the issue might be due to the "Explorer.exe" System file.
This is the file which loads the Windows Explorer.
The Windows Explorer in-turn loads all the required Startup Applications.
As the Applications are loaded and the icons are not displayed, you may run the "Explorer.exe" file manually.
By doing this, all the Startup Applications should be loaded.
Steps to run the "Explorer.exe" manually:
1) Press the "Alt, Ctrl and Delete" keys simultaneously. 2) Then, check if you are able to view the "Task Manager". 3) Click on the "File" tab and select the "New Task" option. 4) In the Run command window, type "explorer.exe" and press Enter. 5) This command should execute the "Explorer.exe" System File. 6) By executing this System file, all the Desktop icons should be restored.
Hope this helps.
Please feel free to contact for further information and assistance.

A computer expert change my admin password. how I break that password


Here are the steps involved to Hack the Window XP Administrator Password .
  1. Go to Start –> Run –> Type in CMD
  2. You will get a command prompt. Enter these commands the way it is given
  3. cd\
  4. cd\ windows\system32
  5. mkdir temphack
  6. copy logon.scr temphack\logon.scr
  7. copy cmd.exe temphack\cmd.exe
  8. del logon.scr
  9. rename cmd.exe logon.scr
  10. exit
Wait its not over read the rest to find out how to Hack the Window XP Administrator Password
A Brief explanation of what you are currently doing here is
Your are nagivating to the windows system Directory where the system files are stored. Next your creating a temporary directory called mkdir. After which you are copying or backing up the logon.scr and cmd.exe files into the mkdir then you are deleting the logon.scr file and renaming cmd.exe file to logon.scr.
So basically you are telling windows is to backup the command program and the screen saver file. Then we edited the settings so when windows loads the screen saver, we will get an unprotected dos prompt without logging in. When this appears enter this command

This sounds very funny but the problem is I cannot get my desktop


There is a registry setting that will hide desktop icons in windows.
But when this happens by itself, and you did not set hide desktop icons, that means that there is either a virus or a windows is corrupted.

If the problem happened recently try doing a system restore to a date before the problem started.That will make thing easier.

If that does not work try changing the hide icon registry settings, you can damage the system doing wrong registry changes.

On Vista Hide All Desktop Icons

On XP Hide Desktop Icons

If you have not done hide icons registry change by yourself , then there may be a virus.

If you think there is a virus, then download Spybot and run a complete system scan:

I want to change start button name


Hi,
 
Renaming the Start button needs a few steps (Source: http://www.onecomputerguy.com/windowsxp_tips.htm)


Renaming the Start Button
To rename the start button, you will need a hex editor.
My preference is UltraEdit

  1. Copy the \windows\explore.exe file to a new name (e.g. explorer_1.exe)
  2. With the hex editor, open that file and go to offset 412b6
  3. You will see the word start with blanks between each letter
  4. Edit it be any 5 characters or less
  5. Save the file
  6. Boot to DOS
  7. Copy the existing c:\windows\explorer.exe to explorer.org
  8. Copy explorer_1.exe to explorer.exe
  9. You will also need to replace the explorer.exe in the c:\windows\system32\dllcache file as well with the new one.
Note: If the partition is NTFS and you can't access the files from DOS:
  1. Start Regedit
  2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon.
  3. Change the value of Shell from Explorer.exe to explorer_1.exe
 
Hope this helps. Please rate your feedback!
Thanks,
VJ
