Here is the solution
1. Press CRTL-ALT-DEL key
2. On File tab, select New Task (RUN)
3. Type REGEDIT and hit enter key
4. In the registry editor, navigate to the following Key.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

5. With the Winlogon key selected, look in the right side window for the 'Shell" value.
6. Double click Shell.
7. In the Value Data box, you should see Explorer.exe. Change it to explorer1.exe and click OK.
8. Exit the registry editor and reboot the computer.

After it fixes it, I suggest you run an Anti Virus. Your system is infected.

Please comeback and rate this answer.
Thank you for using Fixya.

My desktop is blank all icons are gone with icon tray !


- Open Task Manager
- Terminate Explorer.exe (may of hung on start up) on the Processes Tab
- Back on the Applications Tab, click on New Task and type explorer after about a minute does the start menu and windows bar come back?
- If so download all the latest virus defs for your AV software and also the latest (and free) spybot search and destroy 1.6.2 - do a sweep for both spyware and software and remove all and reboot your PC.

This should help you - if not joy I would boot into Safe Mode and look at a system restore point. Also look for any unusual processes that are running in Task Manager - or ones you don't recognize since you last looked at them - if one looks dodgy, do a google search on it to see if its harmful and should be killed.

Good Luck
