    virus

    Seems I have let some menance onto my XP s2 machine. Now only boots to wallpaper and not beyond. When I do crtl/alt/del there are no processess running, seems whatever has knocked them out. I have tried in safe mode but only get a background screen 2. I can't locate my windows disc, any ideas would be greatly welcomed.

    Regards Darren.

    What happens if you activate Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del or Ctrl+Shift+Esc), activate the Applications tab, click the 'New Task...' button, type explorer.exe and click OK?

    If you can start Explorer.exe, you should have the Windows taskbar again. System Restore can be activated through Start | (All) Programs | Accessories | System Tools | System Restore, or through Start | Control Panel | System or through Start | Help and Support.
