Hello,


I upgraded my netbook to windows 8 and I also downloaded an activator and it worked properly last night but when I turned it on this morning the desktop icons were gone and the right click is not working. Is this some kind of virus cause I can't clean my netbook.


Need help! Please!

Hello,

Try this 1

Try the option "Refresh your PC".

If your OS is not performing well then you can refresh your PC without

deleting any of your personal files or changing your settings.

Follow the below instructions

1) Place the Windows 8 DVD in the drive and boot from it.

Make sure that first boot device is set to CD\DVD in CMOS settings.

2) When the prompt appears "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD..", just

press any key.

3) When the "Windows Setup", click on "Next:.

4) When the "Install Now" button appears, select the option "Repair your

computer", found at the bottom left side of that window.

5) When the "Choose an option" window appears, select the option

"Troubleshoot".

6) When the "Troubleshoot" window appears, select the option

"Refresh your PC".

Make sure you read "Here's what will happen" and then proceed with the

on screen instructions.

Good Luck

If you don't have a OS DVD with you then
1) When you switch ON your computer, start tapping the "F8" key to get "Startup Settings" options ( if boot menu appears, press "Esc" key and keep tapping the F8 key)
2) When "Startup Settings" appears, press the "F10" key.
3) When the "Launch recovery environment" appears, press the number key "1".
4) When the "Choose an option" window appears, select the option "Troubleshoot".
6) When the "Troubleshoot" window appears, select the option "Refresh your PC".
Make sure you read "Here's what will happen" and then proceed with the on screen instructions.
Good Luck
