Long shot, but saw this on a website..

In Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition and Professional, the new Start menu is enabled by default. When the new Start menu is enabled, the My Computer, My Documents, and My Network Places icons are removed from the desktop.
Right-click the Desktop and click Properties.
Click the Desktop tab.
Click Customize Desktop.
Click the General tab, and then click the icons that you want to place on the desktop.
Click OK.

For windows 7 ...click right on desktop ..select personalize ..and in the left of the window select change desktop icons..and same thing ...tick the cases..and the main icons will be displayed..apply and OK ..

Can see the desktop and icons, but have no control over them with mouse - can click and doubleclick, but to no avail.


I think someone played a practical joke on you. I bet one of your friends changed your desktop to look like it has icons and then hid the real icons.

Right click on your desktop, and then under the "View" menu item, make sure "Show Desktop Icons" is checked.

Also, right click on the desktop and select "Personalize", then at the bottom of the dialog, select "Choose Desktop Background" and change your desktop background.

I have an HP Pavilion dv2000 and i dont know how to open webcam.


I have an HP Laptop with the webcam. Here is info on it.

There should be an icon on the desktop that you can double click to activate it. Then if it is activated the blue light will go on next to the webcam. If there is no icon do the following:

If the webcam icon is not on the desktop, click Start , click All Programs , select HP Pavilion Webcam to open the webcam from the Windows Start menu.
    • Select HP Pavilion Webcam Demo for a demonstration of the features.
    • Select HP Pavilion Webcam to open the webcam window and display an image from the webcam
  1. If the webcam icon is not on the desktop or on the Windows Start menu, click Start , and My Computer to open the My Computer window. The webcam should be listed under the Scanner and Cameras heading. Double click on the icon to open the webcam window and display an image from the webcam.
  2. If the webcam icon is not displayed on either the desktop or the My Computer window, or cannot be started from the Windows Start menu, the webcam is either disabled or the drivers are not installed.
Enable the webcam If the webcam icon is not displayed on either the desktop or the My Computer window, or cannot be started from the Windows Start menu, the webcam may be disabled. To enable the webcam, do the following actions.
  1. Click Start , right-click My Computer , and then select Properties .
  2. On the My Computer properties window, click on the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager .
  3. Click on the plus ( + ) sign next to Imaging Devices and locate the webcam item in the device list.
  4. If the webcam is listed under Imaging Devices but there is a red X on the c00678428.gif icon, the webcam is disabled. To enable the webcam, right-click the HP WebCam 1000 icon and click Enable . The webcam icon should now display on the Desktop or the My Computer window.
  5. If the webcam is not listed in the Device Manager window, you should install the original webcam drivers.
If you need the drivers see below.
  1. Install the original webcam drivers If the webcam is not listed in the Device Manager window, do the following activities to install the original webcam drivers using the HP System Recovery.
    1. Click Start , click All Programs , click System Recovery , and then click Application and Driver Recovery .
    2. On the Application and Driver Recovery window, select Driver installation and click Next .
    3. Select HP Pavilion Webcam from the list, and click Install .
    4. When prompted that the installation is complete, click OK .
    5. Allow the PC to restart and test the operation of the webcam.
    When the webcam is operating, visit to the HP web site to look for and install the latest updated webcam drivers. If the quality of the image is not acceptable, you can perform a functional diagnostic test of the webcam.

My laptop acer aspire5920 is not shutting down due to removal of my shutdown file from my laptop due to unknown reasons.


Hi dear,
Create Icons for Shutdown and Reboot If you find it annoying to access the Start Menu for shutting down or rebooting the computer, create a shutdown and reboot icon for the desktop.
Desktop Shutdown Icon Right click on the desktop
Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard
Type [shutdown -s -t 00] without the brackets.
Click [Next] and type a descriptive name of your choosing for the shortcut
Click [Finish]
Add a bit of class to the shortcut by assigning it a custom icon. Right click the shortcut, click [Properties] and select the [Shortcut] tab. Click [Change Icon] and select from the icons that are displayed.
Desktop Reboot Icon Right click on the desktop
Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard
Type [shutdown -r -t 00] without the brackets.
Click [Next] and type a descriptive name of your choosing for the shortcut
Click [Finish]
Add a bit of class to the shortcut by assigning it a custom icon. Right click the shortcut, click [Properties] and select the [Shortcut] tab. Click [Change Icon] and select from the icons that are displayed.
A Final Note: If you happen to be as fanatical as I am about having nothing on the desktop, drag the new icons into the Quick Launch area of the Taskbar.


then use it.

if not resolve it

then use following step ;-


click on start then go to RUN and type SFC /SCANNOW
press enter
this command recover all windows lost files, if it will ask windows CD then enter the windows disk.

bye take care
good luck

The toolbar has disappeared


Ok, on windows desktop screen right click your mouse, select personalize, click on TASK BAR AND START MENU, pop up will show select TOOLBARs, then check Quicklaunch.

If icon is missing just create short cut to your desktop, then click and drag, then delete shortcut in desktop screen.

This is for vista.

As for XP it should be properties for personalize, then search for the link.

Leave a comment if this is not the exact one.
