I was recently carrying out a system restore and suffered a power failure part way through. When I finally got power back and rebooted, all I ended up with was the wallpaper screen and no icons. and am now unable to do anything. There was a message on screen to the effect of (I think it said, "explore.exe not found..........."
Can I do anything other than spend money at a repair shop?

many thanks in advance.

Can you boot into Safe Mode? Do you have the installation CD with Windows XP on it (so that you can boot into a repair install or the recovery console)?

many thanx for that, will try it over the weekend. I should have said that xp home is embedded. Not sure if that adds to the problem.

regards Richard
