    Hi everyone,

    i have a problem with my vista home premium pc as described on the title,

    when i restart the pc i get to the welcome screen and my documents folder loads up but the background is completely black, no desktop/no taskbar,

    I can restore my system to show the desktop by navigating to the windows folder and clicking on Explorer.exe, after this my system works as it should. So i am guessing when i start my system windows doesn't load explorer.exe

    I have tried loading explorer.exe into the startup but still nothing,

    has anyone experienced this before?
    what could i do?

    many thanks for your input in advance(y)
