i am running a XP machine.

My computer goes into Windows but no desktop icons appear. I can press CTRL + ALT + Delete and the mouse works

Can somebody help me to load my desktop icons and therefore allow me to use the computer

Within the taskbar I have tried File: New Task run and to find the explorer.exe file

However, it doesnt load. When i try and browse the file, within C: WINDOWS, there is a file called explorer.scf

I try to rename this to .exe but it still doesnt work

What should i do?
