My desktop icons, start up menu etc have all disappeared, leaving only my wallpaper photo on my screen. Right click does nothing and I am not very savy with computers so after reading about this problem, thought I should let an expert assist/direct me.

Hello if using XP or Vista do this.

Please run System File Checker sfc /scannow... For more information on this tool see How To Use Sfc.exe

To Repair System Files


NOTE for Vista users..The command needs to be run from an elevated Command Prompt.
Click Start, type cmd into the Start/Search box,
right-click cmd.exe in the list above and select 'Run as Administrator'


You will need your operating system CD handy.

Open Windows Task Manager....by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ESC

Then click File.. then New Task(Run)

In the box that opens type sfc /scannow ......There is a space between c and /

Click OK
Let it run and insert the XP CD when asked.
