Ok my sister is using compaq armada m700 window 2000 professional. The problem in that desktop is showing up but there are no icons no taskbar no start menu. only wallpaper. pressing alt ctrl del shows up taskmanager but there are no adware or other such processes running up only system processes, i can run programs through it and other things like softwares. i have gone through 20 to 30 forums trying various tips but nothing worked. Please help urgently. last thing she did was paste cliparts from cd to harddrive. thanks.

Open Task Manager, go to File > New Task (Run), and type: explorer.exe then hit return. If your desktop and icons appear then we know your problem is that explorer.exe doesn't auto run (and we need to find out why). If no desktop, then explorer.exe is probably missing or corrupted.
