I have a blank desktop with only my wallpaper in the background upon startup. Explorer.exe isn't loading. The only thing I can do is access windows task manager. I think it may have something to do with the boot sequence, but I'm not sure. Please help!!

Thanks,
Michael

:thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer, Michael. :flowers:

Have you recently tweaked your startups in any form or fashion (i.e. disabling anything)?

Can you manually run Explorer.exe using the Task Manager (New Task)? If it won't run at all, we may be looking at a problem bigger than just screwy startups...
