    Hello,
    Here is my problem,
    I have installed windows 2000 on my system last week, because I spent so much time online without any Anti-Spware program, my pc got loaded with spyware, so I booted to Safemode and ran SpyBot,HiJackThis, and CWshredder to clean out the junk. With HiJackThis I took out the stuff that I thought are junk... So today, I was trying to enter control panel so I could get to the administrative tools, and each time I do that the icons on my desktop disappears and also the taskbar. I tried to restart and logged on into different account no luck...
    All programs that are maximized are still functional and the Task Manager is also accessible.

    I remember when I first install the OS I entered control panel with no trouble..

    Whats the problem here?

    Thanks
