Having problems with your Acer PC Desktops ?

Desktop will not load, cannot get to taskbar, start menu, icons

\015 Was playing a dvd movie and the movie froze, i had to do a cold boot of the pc. After rebooting, I can get past the windows screen but can log in but the desktop will load anything. There is no taskbar, icons and I'm not able to get to the start menu. getting a Svchost.exe:ext.exe Application error and MDNSResponder.exe Application error message instructions cannot be written to memory. I haven't been able to get to the desktop to backup my data. Is there a way to resolve this without losing data before doing a clean install. Version of Windows XP Media Center.... I only have XP Professional on disk right now.\015

Answers :

You would have to use an upgrade verison of WME and what is sad Microsoft does not offer this in an upgrade. In order to retain your data you may have to upgrade to Vista Home premium, I know I have said a bad thing, but your choices are slim to none. If you were able to retrieve WME disk and reload you would have to go through an extensive process and need Administrator level of access, if not Windows will want to wipe your machine and restart anew. Here's some links for info. I hope this was helpful.
