Hi guys,

After a reboot, explorer.exe appears in the processes, but the desktop doesnt start. If i shut down the process and start it again, everything is good until the next restart when i have to start explorer.exe manually again.

Any ideas?

Cheers,
Simmy

Hi Simmy,

Try scanning for corrupt system files ...
from an elevated Command Prompt (right click cmd.exe and choose "Run as administrator") type the following - not forgetting the space before the forward slash ...

sfc /scannow

It will take some time to complete, but should find and fix any missing or corrupted system files.

Then try restarting again and let us know how you get on.
