After installing the latest Windows 7 update, my programs will no longer open. I cannot run anything and all my icons have disappeared. I've looked for similar posts but they are all about malware and viruses. This happened as a result of a Windows update on May 15.

 

Please help! :killcomp:

Use System Restore and take it back to before the update. Then try the update again.

Can you boot into Safe Mode?

 

With the computer off press the power button and immediately start tapping the F8 key until the Advanced Boot Options opens.

 

Use the up or down arrow to navigate to Safe Mode, press Enter to choose this option.

 

After installing the latest Windows 7 update, my programs will no longer open. I cannot run anything and all my icons have disappeared.

 

If you can boot into Safe Mode you should be able to do the system restore from there.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
