So I've recently gotten a bug where I'd get a blank screen after my computer boots up. Apparently it was just my lock screen not loading, but I managed to bypass it by entering my password as usual. I was able to get into my computer, except my desktop icons wouldn't load. The taskbar did load. Nothing that's preinstalled would open (Microsoft Edge, Task Manager, etc.) but other programs do (Chrome, Firefox, etc.). Programs like Task Manager and Edge open, but they don't appear. Like they're on the taskbar, but clicking on them does nothing. Like they're invisible. Is there a solution to this? I thought it might be explorer.exe not working, but I can't open Task Manager to find out. The only possible solutions I've seen so far are formatting my hard drive or reinstalling windows, but doing so is something I want to avoid as best as possible.
