windows xp no icons, no task bar, just backgr

October 5, 2010 at 14:07:48
Specs: Windows XP
ON start up I have nothing but the background picture... was able to get task manager to display with ctl-alt-del and able to launch "solitaire" and managed to get a browser window open to get here, but nothing other than "solitaire" and this window is open.. where did everything go??? I had to do a restore due to lost speaker sound and went back only 2 days and thought everything was OK... Obviously, not.. Any suggestions on how to get my icons and bar back?

mfarrellnj, Try downloading then running the "Restore Desktop Icons and Taskbar" line 195 (right column) vbs file and if that doesn't correct the problem try the "Restore Taskbar and Start Menu" line 117 (left column) reg file. Instructions for both file types are on the page.
