I've just updated my laptop with an antivirus rom microsoft, which I downloaded and executed.The only problem now is that when I switch on it boots up but I have no desktop icons and no taskbar but still have a cursor.Any ideas anyone.

You've been conned into installing a virus. Microsoft do not e-mail patches or links to patches.

Stinger is good at removing this - click here

Then either update with REAL AV or get AVG 6 Free click here

i agree with Vog, you could try right clicking the mouse and choose properties then settings, set the slider to 800*600, see if its just altered the screen size to a massive setting.

good luck
