Hello. I cannot gain access to my desktop. When I boot up I get to my login screen, login, and all I see is my wallpaper. I am able to open up programs by using the Task Manager and going to Run Task..

I think I had a virus prior to this happening called "Windows Police PRO". I deleted all of the files associated with it, and cleaned the registry up that Windows Police PRO put on my computer, but I am still unable to access my desktop, NOR can I get into "My Computer" or "C:" (I've tried opening up IE, and putting "C:" in the address bar and I get this error:

"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have appropriate permissions to access the item."

I'm running Windows XP Home Edition, Intel Pentium 4 2.80 ghz, 640 ram. Thanks to anyone whom can help me.

I suspect that you're probably not 100% cleaned up from the infection that you mentioned. You should probably check in with the folks in the Am I Infected? forum to see if there's something still going on.
I would never ask a person to do something that I wouldn't do myself.
