Ok, just joined the site so hopefully you guys can help me out.

Right, i load up my computer and log in under my name, but when i do i have no icons or taskbar, i open up task manager and try to run exploere.exe but it appears and disappears in a matter of seconds. I have tried running the file SHELLFIX that i found on a previous website using cmd.exe but that has failed to work, Please could you help me out

click here download Tweakui and install it, open it and at the bottom lrft click Repair/ then rebuild icons.
Also go to Start/Run/type sfc /scannow (watch the space between sfc and /) you will need your XP CD Try this first.

Left click on line 117, a box will appear, click save and save to your desk top. Double click on the file you save, when asked do you want to enter etc click yes and reboot.
