So basically this time when I turned on my PC it had this typical error of disappearing taskbars & desktop icons but explorer automatically loads on its own.

I tried to refresh it by ending explorer and running something else with new task but Taskbar and Desktop doesnt load. Tried restarting the PC too.

Please help

Hello,

And if you tried to ending explorer, and then restart it (explorer.exe) ?
By the task manager of course.

Yes of course I did try and nothing happened or else I wouldn't have posted this ._.

The only thing i haven't tried is fixing it thru regedit, but in my friends opinion explorer seems to be corrupt and has to be repaired. Still looking for an alternate solution though
