Specs: Windows XP home
hey folks,

i was wondering you could possibly help.

at the moment, when windows loads the screen freezes on the desktop with no icons and task bar. i attempted Ctrl + ALT and delete. no go. nothing appears. i am able to move cursor and that it.

i can safely boot into safe mode and safe mode with networking and is working fine. currently posting this thread from it.

i have attempted a system restore with no luck as the desktop still freezes. however, when i go back into safe mode, it states the system restore is incomplete.

any help would be very welcome. thanks in advance

Taskbar and Icons missing:

Try this:
(Original Message, and Response Number 1 looks like a fix?)

Also try this:
(That one is a special Posting someone made of how he fixed it.)

Another fix is un-quarintene explorer in Spydoctor.
This page has alot of XP fixes
Some require the download of a VBS, or Regedits file.
So, read at the top of that page--
"To use the Regedits" or "To use the VBS files"

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