Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
I have Windows Vista and last week I was in the middle of downloading a song when all the icons and toolbar just disappeared from my desktop. And now when I turn on my computer, they aren't there-it's just the wallpaper. How do I fix this? I have started it in safe mode and run a Windows Defender scan, which didnt turn up anything. What do I do? Has anyone else had this problem with Vista?
Sound like your explorer.exe process is crashing. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del and select Task Manager. Press the button to view processes from all users, and look for "explorer.exe". If it's there, select it and hit End Task and then move on to the next step. If it isn't then just do this: select File->New Task, and type in "explorer" without quotes in the new window that pops up. When you hit OK it should load up. If explorer appears in the Task Manager for a moment and then disappears then something is consistently causing it to crash. You will then need to boot from the install DVD and perform a repair. Once you can get back into Windows then immediately do a virus scan and a spyware scan. I recommend Avast Anti-Virus and Hitman Pro.
