Hello,
My desktop computer shut down by a power failure this morning. It will boot and all programs seem to be running..but there is nothing on the desktop except the background picture. I have checked the other threads and most of them involve Vista.....my desktop is running Windows Media Edition. Even in safe mode the desktop is not visible. It will not start windows/tasks or recognize taskbar commands. It also appears to start explorer.exe but then nothing changes. It does show the other program - c???.exe not sure exactly what it is and am using my laptop to get help. thanks for any information regarding this as I do not want to have to restore my computer and loose all the information. I also do not have a windows disk...it is a whole reboot disk from hp

thanks
