    When I turn on the computer, I might see the desktop and icons for a second, but then they disappear.

    I think it might be explorer.exe, but then again. I don't know much about computers.

    If you open task manager you can start explorer.exe from there and the icons should reappear.

    It said something about closing and restarting the Windows shell?

    I did it and it said it was done, but nothing changed.

    Sounds like you may have virus or spyware problems. The guys on this forum can help you with that if you post a HJT log.

    Well, try booting in Safe-Mode and uninstall it completely. Next, try to boot in normal mode and see if it helps or not. Report back here. Good luck.

    Didn't work.

    I actually got to the System Restore, but the problem is I don't have a restore point 2 days ago.

    Can I somehow make a restore point on July 13?
