Specs: Windows XP
I have windows XP and when I started my system there was no desktop icon or taskbar or start menu, even right click and left click were not working. Only I could open anything from Ctrl+Alt+Del task menu and from there I tried to open the explorer.exe it stated "Windows cannot find '(null)' . When I went to regedit HKLM->software->microsoft->windows->current version->

then there was no WINLOGON folder

what should I do

Please help:(

Try to boot your computer in safe mode(restart the computer and press F8 and select safe mode) and check icon are showing or not.
You should scan your computer with Malwarebytes (start the computer with safe mode with networking).
If problem still same then you should try to system restore.

If you are not able to boot in safe mode or safe mode with networking then you need to repair your windows operating system.
