What kind of computer is this? Try clicking on the "Update Windows" icon in the control panel, this should bring up a default explorer window that shoudl try to connect to the internet. You can use that to either update your ie to repair the problem or download firefox to get yourself at least on the internet. Then you can try to actually run the update to a better ie version. You also may want to try in add/remove programs removing the IE explorer, this will not totally remove it, the update icon should still function, sounds like you may have issues with your drive or controller thou writing bad data to the sector thus corrupting the explorer itself. Try running a scandisk off the hard drive icon right click.

I can't get my laptop to boot up.


It sounds like your Explorer.exe is corrupted or missing. when you see your desktop wallpaper then you can try to open task manager my pressing Ctrl+Altr+Delete keys all at a time and now click "new task" and type Explorer.exe and press enter. if your Explorer is OK then your icon and other thing should land up if not then restart computer and try to open computer in safe mood by pressing F8, if you can open then try restoring your computer to earlier date by going to start----program---accessories----system tools -----system restore.

Lenovo ThinkCentre M52 Displays limited tray icons on startup.


I was going to say get to a the task manager by CTRL+ALT+DEL and in the upper left hand corner of the window click File then new task (RUN). Type in explorer.exe and hit ok. This normally brings back your task bar, start menu and desktop icons.

If you can't run it, then you definitely have a virus blocking it. Run a virus scan.

    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
