Someone please help! I turned on my puter this morning and I had my wallpaper and nothing else! No icons, no toolbar, no start menu. I get no response to a right click. I can get things to work if I do cntrl-alt-delete and use the task manager to run a program. If I click out of it or minimize, the program goes to a little rectangle on the lower part of the screen. Help?!:(
Just FYI--I've tried safe mode, system restore (3 different restore points and all came back saying it couldn't restore), system check, etc..... I'm running Windows XP Pro

Hmmmmm. You could have picked up a virus along the way. If you have an antivirus program and can update it's definitions, I'd do a total system scan. If that will not work, try an online scan at Trendo Micro's HouseCall.

I have Norton and I did an update and a scan yesterday. I'll try the Trendo in case it didn't catch something.

Thanks for your input. I got over my fear of losing everything and reinstalled my XP. That took care of the problem and I didn't lose a thing!
