I have windows XP and after I used appwiz to uninstall a few programs that I thought were innocuous, Windows XP starts but when I log in nothing shows up on my screen other than the background; no icons and not even the bar at the botton with the start button. How do I fix this? I can open the task manager with ctr/alt/del.
I tried booting in safe mode and as logging on as the administrator. I can't start explorer from Task Manager. Nothing worked. My system make is dell dimension 3100; XP version is home edition with service pck 3. I don't have an installation disc. My antivirous software is AVG.
When I type explorer.exe in the new task (run) box in the windows task manager, the menu bar at the bottom of the screen with the start button flashes very briefy (like a 1/4 of the second.
Could this be malware?
