Having problem with WinXP home. No task bar or shortcuts show. Have tried system restore but no help.

Any ideas?

Thanks

It appears to be caused by problem with Explorer.exe which does not appear as a process in task manager. When I run explorer the task bar flashes up then disappears again, explorer still not shown as running. Could this be caused by a virus?

Have you tried pressing F11?

As a temporary method hit the Windows key (bottom left) this should enable you to access any programmes you don't have a desktop icon for.
