Hey everyone. Sorry if i broke any forum rules but i have expensive connection and cant really mess around much, (i live in europe :S)
My desktop wont load. It happened on 12/28/05, then the day after when i booted my comp up, the desktop icons wouldnt load. EVERYTHING works except desktop does not load up, so I browse by Ctrl+Alt+Del > New task > explorer.exe but its hard without desktop icons.
First I tried system restore, and chose a restore point for 12/21/05, when the progress bar was half done, it froze, soo I rebooted. System restore doesnt work for my problem :(
I then tried running Spybot, Registry mechanic to fix all problems. Many entries were fixed, esp. NewDotNet. But when i rebooted, my problem with the desktop was still present :'(
I dont know if it could have been something i installed. The day before it happened I did install Warez P2P client (if that holds New.Dot.net)
But so far I tried everything, virus scanning/spyware scan/system restore/uninstall all programs on 12/27 ad nothing is working. It is the new year right now (1/1/06 2:00 AM) and I really want to get my comp working good. I would appreciate any smart fella here who can help me out. If I missed anything please just tell me for any other info you would need to know to figure out this issue here.
other notes: I am using my sons account right now, his account is working just fine. We each have our own partition, me Drive F and him Drive C 20 GB each.
Thanks very much.
