You probably have a virus. Your best bet is to download these two free programs and run them each twice alternating. Spybot and Adaware. Do not set them up to monitor, only to scan. Then have them fix any issues that they find.

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..

My desktop icons are not visible but i can browse....


That means your explorer has some issues..Normally in order to get out of this situation, you have to restart your computer and hope that whatever cramped up your OS is now gone. Your icons can be missing from your desktop for two reasons, either something has gone wrong with the explorer.exe process, which handles the desktop, or the icons are simply hidden.If restar doesn't work, right-click on the desktop and choose Arrange Icons By. Next check the Show Desktop Icons item.
