Earlier today I was using my computer when suddenly, it froze. I thought, "No big deal, I'll just restart." So, I restarted and now all I have is a background! No buttons, no start menu, no nothing! When I right click, nothing happens. All I can do is the "Ctrl + Alt + Delete" thing and access programs through that. Could a virus have caused this? Is it something I did? Can someone help me out so I can get my computer back to how it was?

Thanks a million,

Can you boot into Safe Mode? Are you using any programs like Ad-Aware or Spybot? If you can get into Safe Mode try running them from there.
