Hi guys I'm new to bleepingcomputer and whats a better way to introduce myself with a great question.

This is the main problem my computer will start windows but it will only show the desktop picture i have set up. No icons show up just the background picture not even my trusty toolbar. I can only reset it with the power button or by good ol' CTRL ALT DEL and logging off.

Now here is were i think i messed up my system. So I tried deleting some spyware with this vundofix thing on safe mode and i typed up the regular things when it had asked me to do so.

for the first file path i typed this
C:\WINDOWS\system32\jkhhh.dll

and when it had asked me to type out the second i got to about this far and i hit the enter key
C:\WINDOWS\system32

i meant to hit the \ key but instead i hit enter. i knew as soon as i hit enter i messed up my registry. i am just wondering if there is a way i can reinstall my now missing files (i don't even know if they are deleted or not). i can really use any help i can get i would truly appreaciate it.

I am not sure it will work for this, but try Start>Run>cmd>sfc /scannow from Safe Mode.

Try pressing the windows key (between Ctrl & Alt) and the R at the same time.

Your "desktop picture" that you replaced the manufacturer's splash screen with?

Do you have your Windows installation disk or your computer manufacturer's restore system disk?

(Some systems have a restore partition hidden before the C partition you can access from the bios screen)

In any case - it sounds like system reinstall time.

It looks like your explorer doesn't load. No way you deleted your C:\Windows\system32-folder, otherwise you would not even be able to start up your system. :thumbsup:
I guess you are using Taskmanager (CTRL-ALT-DEL) to open Internet explorer (new task > iexplore.exe ) and to browse through your files?
Well, in taskmanager, choose new task and type explorer.exe
Let me know if that loads your explorer. If it doesn't,

Could be that the shell got corrupted, or another malware related file got deleted which was loaded as a debugger under the Image File Execution Option\explorer-key which is no standard anyway.

Using CTRL-ALT-DEL, open taskmanager, type in new task: notepad.exe
Notepad will open.

copy and paste next bold from the quotebox in it:
(don't forget to copy and paste REGEDIT4)

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\explorer.exe]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"Shell"="Explorer.exe"


Save this as fix.reg Choose to save as *all files and place it on your desktop.
It should look like this: Posted Image
Doubleclick on it and when it asks you if you want to merge the contents to the registry, click yes/ok.

Reboot and let me know if this solved the problem.
