    Hello all.

    4 days ago, i turned on my computer,booting up windows xp, only to see that My desktop Background Had dissappeared, becoming nothing but the bluish color background used in defaults.

    Besides this, I lost the way my icons were arranged in the desktop, and i lost about 12 application icons i had before.

    Struggling to see what is going on, i open Firefox to quest for some professional help, but i also lost all internet connection for no reason.

    I'm able to use the internet from a laptop i have, and it is what im using to get some help because i've already tried everything.

    I used to have a monthly problem of having my explorer.exe become disgustingly Laggy and annoying, so what i did to counter those past situations was perform a system restore to a previous date, always returning my computer to its best state.

    Now i've tried the restore 3 times already, cleaned the registry, tried to perform registry tweaks i found online, etc., but nothing seems to solve this.

    Here are the List of Problems:

    -No background, Can't change it, cant modify it, etc.
    -Icons rearranged in default way. Windows theme looks Old.
    -No internet connection, Can't open control panel to set it up again.
    -Can't open Kaspersky, Can't analyze with it, so i deleted it and installed Mcafee.
    -Can't install or uninstall programs in Control panel, it keeps Crashing.
    -Sometimes icons wont load, so i have to terminate explorer.exe and load it again.
    -Lost all my Firefox Bookmarks which contained information of some current Projects.
    -When i run Mcafee, after about 15 minutes of scan, computer turns itself off.
    -Some Computer Hardware is Unrecognizable (usb ports,mouse)
    - I have a final test for next week and i cant work without my computer's Software.

    PLEASE im begging you! ive already tried so many things and nothing had worked! I need a miracle to turn my computer back the way it was!
