Having problems with your Dell PC Desktops ?

Dell - No icons or start button

\015 Dell Dimension E510 - PC boots up fine: loads Windows and gets to password screen. When I enter my password, it says its loading my personal settings, goes into my wallpaper, and gets stuck with no icons and no start button displayed. I tried Task Mgr, New Task, Explorer, but it didn't fix the problem. PC still unusable. Help! Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

To get your Icons back try this.
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Right-click the desktop. \015\012
  2. Point to Arrange Icons By. \015\012
  3. Click Show Desktop Icons.
\015\012I would also try this.
\015\012Another quick shot, is goto Start, Run, type "msconfig", and click the tab saying DIAGNOSTIC. click apply, restart, and see if your icons are there.
\015\012
\015\012Then I would run a virus scan. you could have a virus on the machine. I recommend MalwareBytes for virus removal. you can get it at www.Download.com
