I turn my computer on and all my icons and start bar are missing. I have googled several different things to try and fix this and they were either temporary fixes or didn't work. Is this a common problem and easy to fix? If so, how? Thanks! :thumbsup:

Are you able to bring up Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL?

Try, in the Task Manager, going to "File" --> "New task (Run)" or something similar. Enter there "explorer.exe" and hit enter. Does it work?

In that case, I strongly suggest, you create new topic in "Am I infected?" forum.
