It means it means microsoft windows explorer is not running

  1. Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE, and then click Task Manager.
  2. Look for explorer.exe in the "Image Name" column.
  3. Right click on it and select "End Process".
  4. Click File from the menu.
  5. Click New Task (Run...).

    if you want to restart an instance of
    Windows Explorer, you should use the official way to shut down
    Explorer, rather than killing it from Task Manager! To shut down
    officially, hit Start->Shutdown (or Turn Off Computer on Windows
    XP), then while holding the control shift and alt keys, click cancel on
    the shutdown dialog. To start a new instance of Windows Explorer, bring
    up Task Manager by holding the control and shift keys, then hit escape.
    In Task Manager, choose File->New Task and enter "Explorer.exe".
    This will have restarted Windows Explorer properly.

You probably have the S.M.A.R.T. virus. Bring it to a PC shop that specializes in virus/malware removal for a set price. This virus infestation is serious trouble.

However if you feel you can fix it on your own. Check for viruses and malware. But be warned the S.M.A.R.T. virus is extremely difficult to completely remove and you'll need to restore all your icons as well.

Boot your computer into "safe mode with networking" by pressing F8 several times at startup until the boot screen comes up. Then select "safe mode with networking".

Once you're up and running: You can get good FREE anti-virus and anti-malware apps from here:

After login desktop doesn't appear im using


Hello,

It seems you have a virus, where you only see the mouse pointer and no desktop icons nor start bar ?
Please update anti-virus database then run virus scan.

If you are sure you do NOT have a virus, try to do a system restore to a point when you know the laptop was working with desktop available.

For Windows Vista/7, press on start then type in SYSTEM RESTORE, double-click on the icon that comes up, choose "Restore previous point".

My laptop's (Toshiba Satellite A105-S361)desktop doesn't bring the desktop icons and the task bar after I loaded AVG 9 antivirus software. Why is that? Would you mind give me a solution, pls?


The desktop icons and the task bar would generally dissappear if you have a virus on the PC. However, sometimes improper software installations may cause undesired results like we have right now. Instead of trying uninstalling anything, try restoring the system to a previous point using system restore.
