If you can boot into Safemode, do that and create a new user account and try again.

HOW TO START WINDOWS IN SAFE MODE

The only time I've ever seen a desktop disapear was when a computer was infested with malware... :thumbsup: Might want to run some anti malware programs just to be safe. I'd follow these steps HERE, up to but not including the submitting the HJT log, unless you feel that you need to. If running a few of the malware programs gets your desktop back, then you've probably still got some infections on your computer, and submitting a HJT log might not be a bad idea :flowers:

You got what? Are you saying you have your desktop back.

If you still don't try this, just make sure you back up the registry before doing it:

When your computer restarts, Windows Explorer (Explorer.exe) does not run, and the Windows icons and the Start button are unavailable. To resolve this problem, follow these steps:

a. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to start Task Manager.
b. Click File, and then click New Task (Run...).
c. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
d. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\RpcSs
e. On the right side of the viewing pane, right-click ObjectName, click Modify, type LocalSystem in the Value data box, and then click OK.
f. Restart your computer
