I Am In Desperate Need Of Help. I Bought This Computer From A Friend Of Mine. It's Windows Xp Professional. I Don't Have Any Boot Disk Or A Operating Cd. It Was Running Slow So I Downloaded Something Called Windows Advanced Personal Care. I Did A Restore Point And Somehow I Deleted Everything From The Startup. Now When I Turn On The Computer The Screen Is Blank. It Shows My Wallpaper Nothing Else. I Do Ctrl+alt+del And Run Explorer.exe It Comes On For A Second And Goes Away. If I Keep On Doing That It Eventually Comes Back But Not When The Computer Starts Again Then There Is Nothing. Is There A Way I Can Do Something To Get This Back. I Tried Restoring It Doesn't Work I Tried In Safe Mode It Still Doesn't Work Please Tell Me What To Do Thanks.

Try this, click on alt-ctrl-del and then in the task manager that pops up, hit file - New Task
In the box type exporer.exe and hit enter.

Well, I am not sure the fix on the following site will help, but it does fix a lot of problems: http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2006/09/04/739820.aspx
