Empty desktop after logging in

Posted: 07-24-2003, 10:20 PM
After logging into Win XP Pro, the desktop is blank, except
for the background. Can't click, mouse arrow shows up. No
task bar, nothing.
Only thing that works is CTRL-ALT-DEL for task manager.

Any ideas???

Hi Vince,

Control/Alt/Delete - When the Windows Task Manager dialog box appears, go
to Processes, find Explorer.exe highlight it and choose End Process.

Keep the task manager open then select the File menu and then New Task
(Run). When the Create New Task dialog box appears, type in Explorer and
press the OK button. Windows Explorer should restart complete with the
Taskbar and Start button.

If still nothing: Go back to the Task Manager/File/New Task and type in
msconfig. On the General Tab choose Expand File. Or
Go to Start/Run and type in CMD:
expand x:\i386\explorer.ex_ c:\windows\explorer.exe
