    Hi operating windows 7. Been offline for some time,but still played games. When turn on the machine now; as far as I get is the main screen with no icons task bar or start. There is a small person that likes to push buttons? I have hp 6180t. I tried all 4 options as the computer starts up, but nothing works. Can someone help? Thanks VP

    When you get into Windows, hit Ctrl + Alt + Delete.

    Select "Task Manager."

    Under Applications(tab), select "New Task."

    Type in "explorer.exe" and hit Enter.

    Assuming that brought back some of the essentials, perform a System Restore.
