Windows xp: Hello, i am so stressed, been reading everyone's answers to this problem, but nothing is working for me, i have windows xp, i have tried starting it in safe mode, running virus sweep, and also going back to a previous date a couple times! also tried doing the task manager>copy and rename explorer.exe thing!

The only thing that seemed to work was logging off and back on, now i can see my taskbar and desktop items but the backround is no longer there just the restore backround thing but i cant click on anything! when the mouse is over the taskbar it has the loading icon, and my desktop and items just wont acknowledge me clicking on anything, right click doesn't even work! PLZ PLZ PLZ HELP ME!!!!

I loaned out my windows disc to a friend a while back and they never gave it back then moved away, so thats not an option for me, also i dont have money to go to tech PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Also, i think this was caused by my computer when it came outta standby the ctrl key was held down all the way through the loading process!!

Greetings

1. Go alt+Ctrl+Delete at the same time and wait for a box to open

2. when the box is open Click "file" at the top and then Click "New Task (Run...)"

3. When you get another small box with something to type in, type in "explorer.exe" (without the ")

4. Your Taskbar and Icons will now load,
