Hello. I am new to the forums. Ran across the site as I was researching for a possible cause to my problem.
I run Windows XP and last nite as I was removing some old programs that I don't use to free up some Hard Drive space (i was running low), I ran into a problem.
My desktop icons stopped working. Everything else seemed to be running normal, but the desktop icons. So I closed everything down, and rebooted.
When the PC booted up, I got my desktop background, but nothing else. I can open my windows task manager and run programs thru that, but I have no desktop and no toolbar.
Doing some reading I read about the HiJack This program, which I have downloaded and will run and post the code in a minute.
I am far from a computer god, but I can find my way around it pretty well, and any help would be much appreciated. I have a lot of music that I really don't want to lose (I haven't backed it up).
The PC is ordinarly used just for internet and music. It has a consistently updated virus scanner on it, and I also ran Spybot Search and Destroy just no with nothing found.
Thanks in advance for any help!
