I'm having a small problem, due to a recent virus, my PC will no longer boot Windows Explorer. All I can see when booting up the PC is the XP Bliss background (yay). No Start Menu, No Task Bar, No Desktop Icons, No Nothing!
I have tried running explorer from the the Task Manager, but I get the following message:
"Windows cannot find 'explorer.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search."
Obviously I cannot hit the 'Start Button' because Windows Explorer is not running.
Before all of this happened, it seemed like I was getting slammed by Trojans and my Norton was working overtime to keep them from getting in. So I did a search on the net and found that if I run Ad-Aware, it may solve the problem. I ran it, the Trojans left me alone, and everything was fine for a few days.
I turned the computer on this morning, and I get nothing. To do anything, I have to run processes through the Task Manager.
I know there are other topics similar to this posted on the forum, but I'll be honest with you, when it comes to having to do internal work on the computer, I would rather be able to work with someone rather than going on the advice somebody else posted for another user.
If you can help me I would greatly appreciate it.
