Is it possible for you to run anything an download anything? i understand the shortcuts dont work but what about if you go into task manager wth ctrl alt del click file then run then explorer.exe if it then comes back please follow the instructions below...

Please download MalwareBytes Anti-Malware to your desktop.

1.Ensure that your computer is connected to the internet and your software firewall is disabled until instructed to re-enable it.
2.Double click on the mbam-setup.exe to begin the installation process.
3.When the installation begins, please do not change any of the settings and follow the prompts.
4.Please make sure that when you finish the installation, these options remain checked;
5. *Update MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware
6. *Launch MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware
7.You may now click finish...
8.When MBAM launches, you will be prompted to update before running a scan. If an update is found, MBAM will automatically download and apply the updates and you can then click 'OK' button to close the box and continue. You may now re-enable your firewall
9.Please ensure that while you are on the scanner tab the 'Perform Quick Scan' option is selected, then click the 'Scan' button.
10.If you are asked which drives to scan, please leave all of them ticked, and click 'Start Scan'.
11.The scan will now begin and you will see “Scan in progress” at the top; It may take a while to complete so please be patient.
12.When the scan completes, you will see “The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found”
13.Click the 'OK' button to close the box and continue with the removal process.
14.Back on the main scanner screen, click 'Show Results' to see a list of any found Malware.
15.Ensure that all items are checked and then click the 'Remove Selected' button.
16.When the removal process is complete, a log will open in notepad; this log will be automatically saved and you can view it in the logs section of the program.
17.Copy and paste the contents of the log file that is open into your next reply and exit MBAM.

Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the Malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.
Please PM me if i have been assisting you and do not reply for 24 hours!

By policy Microsoft no longer allows OEM manufactures to include the original Windows XP CD-ROM on computers sold with Windows preinstalled. Instead, most computers manufactured and sold by OEM vendors come with a vendor-specific recovery disk or recovery partition for performing a clean "factory restore".

A Recovery Disk is a CD-ROM or DVD data disc that contains a complete copy/image of the entire contents of the hard drive that will restore the system to its factory default state at a certain time. Essentially, it will reformat your hard drive, remove all data and restore the computer to the state it was in when you first purchased it. You will lose all data and have to reinstall all programs that you added afterwards. This includes all security updates from Microsoft so you will need to download/install them again.

Some factory restore CDs give you all the options of a full Microsoft Windows CD, but with better instructions and the convenience of having all the right hardware drivers. Others can do nothing except reformat your hard drive and restore it to the condition it was in when you bought the computer. Before using a factory recovery disk make sure you back up all your data, photos, etc to another source such as a CD or external hard drive.

A Recovery Partition is used by some OEM manufacturers (Dell, HP, IBM, Gateway) instead of a recovery disk to store a complete copy of the hard disk's factory default contents for easy restoration. This consists of a hidden bootable partition containing various system recovery tools, including full recovery of the preinstalled Windows XP partition that will allow you to restore the computer to the state it was in when you first purchased it. The recovery software will then re-hide its own partition after creating a new partition and installing the software to it. You will lose all data and have to reinstall all programs that you added afterwards. This includes all security updates from Microsoft so you will need to download/install them again.

Recovery partitions may only work with a start-up floppy disk or the user may be prompted immediately after the "Out Of Box Experience" (OOBE) to create backup CD-R disks for the software on the hard drive image for future use. Once the CD's are made, the Operating System, Drivers, or Applications can be reinstalled using the files on the hard drive or the backup CDs. Before using a recovery partition make sure you back up all your data, photos, etc to another source such as a CD or external hard drive.

Some built in recovery partitions can be accessed by hitting Ctrl+F11, just F11 or F10 during bios startup. Others like those used by IBM Thinkpads will display a message at bootup instructing you to press F11 to boot from the recovery partition. For more information, see Understanding Partition recovery.

If you have an HP system, see:
HP Recovery.
HP Recovery From Partition.
HP Notebook PCs: Using HP Recovery Manager.

If the above does not pertain to your make/model, then contact HP Support/Customer Service or HP notebook support.
