Start task manager, then go to file>new task>type the word "explorer" in the box, and then hit OK.

tap f8 and go into safe mode on boot-up. After safe mode appears there should be icons, if not, post back.
Then reboot in normal mode, the icons should re-appear.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

..." owkei "

... tap "F8" key @ boot-up select "safe mode" using arrow keys [press ENTER]

... once in safe mode click "no" on the "pop-up" that should guide you to system restore

... select a restore point by altering the restore calendar to a time when the pc was working fine.

Grrrr

Some require the download of a VBS file.
So, read at the top of that page--
"How to use the VBS files"

Then go to line 195, then click item in right hand column.
