How do I get my icons on after computer has gone to sleep?


If you are using xp try going to control panel, change the desktop background to anything else in the offered menu, click apply. Then do the same thing again and select the background you normally use. That will sometimes get the icons back up.

No icons on desktop


try to start in safe mode As the PC start tap F8 until a menu appears then choose safe mode If that works you could try the following
  1. do a system restore to a date before you hade the problem start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore
  2. If that does not resolve the issue - try a clean boot http://support.microsoft.com/kb/331796 see if that fixes it- if it does - then we need to work out which startup file or process is causing the issue

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

Starts up but shows no icons only background pic so I can't proceed. If I start up with the other user icon then I can use computer. Did System Restore, did not help.


Well my friend it sounds as though we need a little clean up of your computer. Anything we clean out -you do NOT need. It is in stalled elsewhere. What we will clean out are only duplicates (clutter). If you have never done this it will take some time...here we go...START->PROGRAMS->ACCESSORIES->SYSTEM TOOLS->DISC CLEAN UP...now when that box opens up put a check in every box. Then click OK..then a warning comes on and says are you sure...say yes. (it seems to always indicate that you don't need to do it at this time...do it anyway)
Then the machine will do its thing...when that is done follow the same route back to Disc clean up only this time click on Disc Defragmenter and click on the word DEFRAGMENT and sit back and relax...it again will take some time pending on when or if ever you did it last. (Run this procedure once a week and it will take 30 seconds to do)
You'll love your machine again...good luck

Desktop icons and start button issue


Hit CTRL-ALT-DEL

Task manager will come up.

Then click File, New Task.

Then type explorer.exe

This will load the things that you're missing. These things are probably missing because you have a virus. Make sure you do a scan.

To recover your desktop icons, right click on the background and select "Arrange Icons By" then just re-select the "Show Desktop Icons" option.
As for wireless setup, do you have your router properly configured? Follow the instructions in the router manual. Post back if you need more help along with the model of the router.
Cheers.

The desktop is empty


First a question; you say you only have the background and cursor does that mean literally everything else is gone including the start button in the lower left and the task manager in the lower right? Or do you mean that all your icons, shortcuts, folders and files you had on your desktop are gone?
