Yesterday I saw the yellow Windows shield which prompted me to download the lates Security updates. I have Windows XP SP3. When the download was finished I was prompted to restart my PC which I did. After the PC finished loadiong up I was left with a blank desktop and no bottom toolbar (no Start button) and, therefore, unable to access anything. I restarted in safe mode and accessed System Restore and went back, first 1 day and then 2 days without success - still no desktop. I am able to access Windows Task Manager, and, using the File drop down menu was eventually able to acces the internet.
I can access my e-mail via webmail.
Can anyone make any suggestions onhow I get my PC access back?
