Shut your off. Wait 30 seconds. Boot the computer up into safe mode by pressing f8 before the Windows screen appears. Select Safe Mode and press enter. Once the desktop appears, restart your computer the normal way.

If it continues you should reinstall your operating system to fix the problem.

I got a new computer i cant see my web icon no more


Assuming you have one of the Microsoft Windows operating systems (Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, etc.) go to Start -> All Programs -> Internet Explorer.

To add a shortcut to the Start Menu, right click on Internet Explorer icon, and select "Pin to Start Menu".

To add a shortcut to your desktop, right click on Internet Explorer icon, and select "Send to" -> "Desktop (create shortcut)"

Start Menu And Desktop Icons Are Gone The start menu and desktop icons are gone. When I right click on the desktop nothing happens. I have to do things with the task manager only! How do I get them...


Heya

First of all Start up menu and desktop icon doesn't appears because explorer.exe doesn't loads properly which is a system component file mandatory for the computer to load...Now the solution:-

Press CTRL+ALT+DEL simultaneously ONLY when you don't see any icons or the start up menu
Windows TASK MANAGER will appear.
Now click on FILE top left corner>>>NEW>>Type explorer.exe>>Click OK or enter

You will be able to see all the icons

Now the Software Counterfeiting problem..This happens when your copy of windows doesn't pass the Genuine test..Now this doesn't mean that the copy which your using is not genuine.Even if its not genuine i.e. pirated..there's a common solution for it.
Click on the following link to download and install WGA remover which will remove the Software Counterfeiting problem..

The recycle bin icon has disappeared from the desktop.Can you help?


Hello

Firstly, what operating system are you using? I am going to give you steps to fix this in both xp and vista.

Windows XP:
  1. Right click any blank area of your desktop. In the menu that comes up, click on “Properties.”
  2. Step 2 Click on the “Desktop” tab, and then click on the “Customize Desktop” button.
  3. Step 3 On the “General” tab, you will see a field with some standard desktop icons. Click on the “recycle bin” icon and then click on “Restore Default.” Click “OK,” and then “Apply,” and finally “OK” again. You should see your recycle bin back in its spot on your desktop. If your recycle bin is still not appearing on your desktop, try the next steps.
  4. Step 4 Right click a blank area of your task bar, point to “Toolbars,” and then click on “Desktop.”
  5. Step 5 Click on the double carets (>>) next to “Desktop” on your taskbar. Look for your recycle bin in the menu that comes up.
  6. Step 6 Drag the recycle bin from the menu to your desktop by clicking on it with your mouse, holding the mouse button down, and moving it to the desktop.
Windows Vista:

First, right-click on the Desktop and select Personalize. In the dialog box on the right hand side, there should be an option called Change desktop icons.
change-desktop-icons-thumb.png
On the Change desktop icons dialog box, go ahead and check the Recycle Bin box to add that back to your desktop. You’ll notice that there is a Full Recycle Bin and Empty Recycle Bin icon.
restore-recycle-bin-thumb.png
If you click Apply, your icon should now be back on the desktop.


Really hope this can be of help.

Kind regards
Andrea

SYSTEM IS RESTARTING UNEXPECTEDLY


Hello Rijumohan.

You havnt specified that is your system showing the desktop screen or it restart itself at the begining of the BIOS Message.

if you are able to see the desktop screen then:
The first thing you should suspect about the Viruses.
Because your virus leads to your very slow as well as restarts itself without awaring you. It is caused by Worm and Trojon viruses. For making sure that ur system is suffering from virus go to tools in menu bar and check for folder. if the folder option appears to you then it is okay. again try to go to Task manager by right clicking on the tasl bar. If the task manager is also showing then you are not affected of viruses. Run any antivirus setup if you are suspected about viruses on your system

another reasion could be, missing of attrib.bat or command.com file from ur system.
for these reasion Repair or format ur active drive.

OR If your system restart itself at the begining of the BIOS Message:

1. Then your RAM goes bad.
2. You havenot installed ur Expansion card properly.
3. If you have attached to hard disc then check for jumper settings. (or if you have attached two hard disc, one is SATA and another is PATA)

do the remedies for the same

(Gimme ur acknowledge by rating me)
