I assume that you mean that your Start button and taskbar are gone, as well as your desktop icons.

I think that the first thing I would do is to use task manager to start a new task and type


. . . and then in the DOS emulator that pops up, type

sfc /scannow

. . . At this point, it would be good to have your XP disk in the drive if you have one. Don't miss the space between the sfc and the /scannow.

If it replaces any files and the system starts normally, you're very lucky.

Also, if that doesn't work, start the new task and type


. . . and then OK to see if it does anything. If nothing, then try this: again using task manager, type in cmd again and then from the command line type (or copy and paste this into the window):

copy /y "c:\windows\system32\dllcache\explorer.exe" "c:\windows"

. . . just like that and hit enter. Restart normally and see if it worked.

Let us know what happens.
