I am suspecting some kind of malware infection perhaps..??
I am not entirely sure but I have been researching all day to no avail.. well ladies and gents,.. heres my situation, i have the Windows XP Home edition on an Inspiron 6000 and when i turn the dang thing on i get as far as signing in.. then when the screen gets to the main screen, the only thing that shows is my background. My desktop is completely blank, there are no icons, no start menu, no task bars, and i cant right-click.
If I alt + ctrl + del, i can get the following message stating that my "Task Manager has been disabled by my administrator" .. but i am the administrator..!!!! grr..
I have preceeded to read up on that particular issues and found only ways to enable the task manager by way of using the START button which i do not have access to..
I have also tried and FAILED running it in any safe modes..
also i tried to re-install XP with the Dell issued purple OS disk with no response..
can you help me..?? any suggestions..??
just a dumb girl O_o
