I have vista home basic. The desktop is gone, even my wallpaper, and the start menu. There is just a blue screen. I've searched the internet many times but can't seem to find the same problem, similar but somewhat different, possibly because of a different OS? I tried every fix I can think of. Now I'm stuck, I don't know what to do, and afraid of losing everything on my computer.
I also wanted to add that when I use task manager to run explorer.exe it brings up the "Computer" window listing Local Disc, Recovery, etc. I'm able to browse files that way but as soon as I close it, "explorer.exe" disappears from task manager.
