Start, Desktop, Task Manager wont work

I posted on the problem you answered some time ago. I have Windows 2000 server Professional at work, and I have no desktop, start menu and if I try to use the Task manager nothing happens. I can't try most of the solutions I have found because they all require use of the desktop and/or the task manager. Also, I tried starting in safe-mode with Command prompt and nothing came up on the screen such as the command prompt. Help Please?

    Is there any way to restore Windows 2000 to date in the past without the use of the desktop or task manager, such as before the boot sequence during start up? Or is it possible to get into the computers files and remove the latest updates without having a desktop? Would this require the recovery disk.

Had a virus got rid off it but now screen is white and cannot do anything with it


A white blank screen? That sounds like the virus changed your display settings. Click Ctrl+Alt+Del to get to the task manager. Press and hold the Ctrl key plus the Alt Key then hit the Del key. When the task manager opens up Click File at the upper left corner of the window then select New Task RUN. When the create New Task Window opens type: explorer.exe and hit OK. See if it starts populating your desktop icons and shows the start menu and task bar. If so, the virus changed your settings.

To change your display background click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. When it opens select the Desktop tab and change the desktop background. Hopefully the white will go away.

You may have to get into Safe Mode to do the above if the virus disabled the Task Manager.

An disk error occurred ctl alt & del to restart


You should be more specific as to when the problem occured as the solution for each instance would be different. However since there is no other information, please proceed with the following generic solution.
if there is a disk error you should either press ESC (to remove the alert window on the screen) or hit CTRL + ALT +DEL.
within windows you will get the option to start Task Manager. Choose Task Manager. Locate Windows Explorer in the list of processes, select it and press End Process.
All your windows along with desktop and system tray will disappear.
Then within task manager Goto File > New Task.
A Run command window will open. type in explorer.exe and press enter. Your windows along with desktop apps will restart and this time there wont be an i/o error.

Home Screen Problem


Hi,
Try reloading explorer.
To do this press Ctrl, Alt + Del, select task manager, when task manager opens up click on the processes tab and look down the list for explorer.exe, highlight that and click on end task, the desktop will disapear but don't worry about that. In the task manager window click on file, from the list select new task (run) and type in the box explorer and click ok. The desktop will return and try using a short cut.
If the shortcuts still won't work you could have a virus or malware on the computer.
If this is the case please post back with which operating system you are using.

Good luck.

Black screen with cursor.


While in Task Manager goto File and the New Task. At the prompt type Explorer. If the desktop returns then you have explorer file corruption, running SFC /scannow at the New Taks prompt should restore everything. If typing Explorer does not work then you'll need a Windows Repair or possibly Windows reinstall.

Icons and desktop not displaying


This is most likely a system glitch. Try a system restore first, then a system repair with your operating system disc if the restore doesn't do the trick. You should be able to get into the system tools from the task manager to do the restore.

My icons will not come on my desktop


This maybe due to the "explorer.exe" process not running. Try pressing ctrl-alt-del, to start the task manager then select the "processes" tab and click on "file". In the "create new task" window type "explorer.exe" (without quotes) & click OK. Your desktop icons should magically appear!
