My start and close button has disappeared on my computer. What do I do?


When you dont see your Start botton or your Icons once your PC is started explorer.exe has stopped working. This is most likley the form of Malware.

Try This:

Once your Start button returns you might want to scan your PC with Malwarebytes in safe mode to remove any unwanted software.

Desktop icons is disappeared


The most-common cause is a computer-virus that DELIBERATELY has "hidden" those icons.

Take your computer to a computer-store, and get them to remove the disk-drive from your computer, attach it as a "slave" disk-drive in one of their computers, and then run a "deep" virus-scan of your disk-drive, to "clean" your files.

That happened to my Laptop as well and all I did is reinstalled the audio driver that is included in the package and it actually worked with no problem. If in that case is still happening, try to update the driver after reinstalling it.
