Question about HP Computers & Internet
My computer started up normally, but when it came to the desktop, that's all I have. I have no start menu, no icons. I accessed the internet through the task manager. My computer is older, but I don't know if I have a virus that has taken everything down or what. A couple months ago I did have Avast antivirus. At some point Avast was taken down by something and I couldn't repair or reload it. It kept saying trojan alert, but was unable to get rid of it. I really need my computer. I have a daycare and all of my business records for the past year are on it. I need to rescue it as soon as possible. Please and Thank you!
It sounds like you have a virus riddled computer as well as no Anti virus protection either.
Try and get your desktop back this way >>>>>
Start task manager, in the top right hand corner of the window you will see File, click on that. Where it say's new task (Run), click on that and type in the box explorer and then hit the enter key.
Hopefully your desktop icons and task bar will return.
If they do return you will need to obtain some anti virus software.
You can get AVG 9 Free here >>>>>>>>
Download and install this excellent free software and then perform a deep scan of the system for any and all viruses, malware and spyware.
If you can't get the desktop icons to return post back here straight away and tell me what operating system you are using, like XP, Win 2000/98 for example.
