You don't have explorer.exe on your computer?:thumbsup: The graphical interface for your version of windows?:flowers: About half or more the features of windows function via explorer.exe. Or are you referring to Internet Explorer? If in fact you don't have explorer.exe, you will need the the install/restore CD that came with your computer. I have never seen it as a download-able file from support.microsoft.com. If it's become hidden somehow it should be in your c:\windows\System32 folder.

hey if you are seeing your task bar and start button then it means you have explorer.exe. Just try ctrl+alt+del and click on "Application" tab, at the bottom you see the "New Task" button, click that. Type explorer.exe and hit enter.
Reply back whatever happens.
Hey I assume its Windows XP issue.
If its windows 98*Grinler then just try
scanreg /restore or scanreg /fix in the command prompt.

Hey can you try system restore ? If you have installed something which might have spoiled the system settings, you may get it back by system restore if it was enabled before. To start system restore from command prompt, use this
%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

Else give it a try with "sfc /scannow" in the command prompt.

I know you dont have windows cd but if you find one.. here is another way

A quick way to solve this problem is here :-

When you log on to ur system the one of two shells are started from the following registry location. One is CMD.EXE and other one is Explorer.exe. So Windows is designed using the small set of programs. So explorer.exe is a small set of program and present you with the GUI edition of Windows (means Desktop). So you should remove any unwanted entries from the following Registry locations :-

Look in the following locations for startup programs that may be suspect:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\
and then on the Right Pane find Entries called

"Shell" must contain this value "Explorer.exe" without quots
"Userinit" must contain this value "E:\WINNT\system32\userinit.exe," without quots

If you see anything different then please replace it with ur current version of exploerer.exe and userinit.exe.

after replacing the Registry entries from the above method replace the following files :-

exploerer.exe
userinit.exe

NOTE : Any malware process may delete original files (exploerer.exe and userinit.exe) and then put itself to the above regitry location to lunch at startup and then their programming instructions contains not to run anything on startup or not to sho Desktop :-)

You can get above two files from Windows CD.

1. Insert Windows CD
2. Goto I386 directory of CD.
3. create a folder on ur Desktop or Startup Drive name it "Original"
4. copy the following files to ur "Original" directory.

explorer.ex_
userinit.ex_
expand.exe

5. and then goto command prompt, goto the "Original" directory.
6. finally issue the following command :-

Expand explorer.ex_ X:\Original\explorer.exe
Expand userinit.ex_ X:\Original\userinit.exe

7. and then replace the above files using the "Recovery Console". You need to copy these two files in \WINNT\System32 directory.

What CDs came with your computer?

Is there a "restore" CD from the computer manufacturer?

What operating system does the computer have and have you kept the updates current?
