Chances are your profile has become corrupt. There are a few ways to fix this. The one surefire way is to make a new profile and copy your My Documents from the old profile to the new one, as well as My Pictures to My Pictures, etc. To do this you should turn on the pc, and after the first black background screen with logo (most likely) goes away, start tapping the F8 button every second or two until a menu comes up with options like "safe mode" "safe mode with networking" etc. Use the arrow key on your computer and move the highlight to "safe mode with networking". Hit enter on you keyboard. You may need to hint enter once or twice more until you get to a login screen like what you may be used to. Choose your username and login. Hit ok on the initial safe mode screen. If your desktop loads with icons, then your profile is ok, something else is wrong. If your icons don't show up, then we know your profile is corrupt. If your icons are gone, shut down, follow steps to enter safe mode, but choose Administrator as the user, and hit enter with a blank password to enter Administrator profile. Once in there go to Control Panel, and then User Accounts and make a new user. Then restart the comptuter, log in as the new user, and copy your files from the old profile to the new one.
Let me know if this doesn't work and we will try something else.

No icons or tool bar on desktop at startup


In your desktop, Right click your mouse and properties will show and look for show desktop option. And then move your mouse to the bottom of your computer screen, if toolbar will show, then your toolbar is set to automatic hide. Change the settings in your Taskbar and Start Menu Properties and change there the settings, uncheck the auto hide task bar.

I HAVE A WINDOW XP HOME EDITION AND WHEN I START MY COMPUTER THE ONLY THING THAT COMES UP IS THE BACKGROUND. THERE ARE NO ICONS OR A BAR AT BOTTOM OF SCREEN.


the icons and the bar(task bar) at the bottom of the screen are enabled by the explorer.exe file

it starts automatically but in your case it is not starting

to start it when your computer starts and comes at the desktop, press alt+ctrl+delete button at the same time to bring up the task manager

when you do this a task manager shows up in a window

in task manager window click on file, it will be located on the top left portion on task manager

now click on "new task(run)"

this opens another window, in that window type
"explorer"
without the quotes "" and press enter
this will bring you icons and task bar at the bottom of the screen
