Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

Desktop view problem

\015 I'm working on a Hp Pavilion v50 desktop. Any ways, I can only see the background picture. I can not see the taskbar, startmenu button, nor folders and shortcuts. I could only operate the computer through windows task manager. The OS on this computer is Windows XP. Am I missing some program or need to download something?\015

Answers :

In task manager click on "new task" and then type "explorer.exe" into the dialogue box. If everything boots up then its somhow been removed from your startup process, most likly a virus.
Type "msconfig" into the run dialogue box (start>run) [start menu search in vista] and check your startup options.

To manually re-add explorer to the startup follow these instuctions carefully.

Type regedit into the run dialogue box (start>run) [start menu search in vista] navigate the folders on the left to Winlogon

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/MICROSOFT/WINDOWS NT/CURRENT VERSION/WinLogon
look for Shell double click it and in the value data box delete whats there and put this:
explorer.exe

Go to new task and make sure you enable Windows Explorer.
