|I'm having trouble with my desktop loading. When I start my computer up, I see the usual Dell logo followed by the Win Me logo. At this point, my desktop (the wallpaper, the icons, the shortcuts, the menu, etc) usually loads but now all I get is a black screen. I can see and move my mouse arrow around the black screen, and the computer sounds normal (like it's loading my usual programs up), but I can't see anything on the monitor besides the mouse arrow.|
I can reboot into Safe Mode, though, and see all my folders on the desktop, the start menu, etc. There just isn't a way to connect to the internet or access my cd-r/rw in Safe Mode in case I need to download a file...I think I would have to use a floppy disk.
What I'm afraid of is that I deleted an important file accidentally. I ran Trend Micro Housecall yesterday afternoon and it detected some malware/spyware on my computer, which I deleted. But the computer was working for several hours after that until I shut the computer down before bed. The problem started when I tried to turn the computer on this morning.
I tried doing a System Restore to a week before yesterday but I'm still getting the same problem.
