I installed Nero 7 to my laptop and now when I boot the only thing I have is my wallpaper. No starter bar , no desktop. Nothing.
I can access all programs through Task Manager but did think I could Restore through msconfig but t is just coming up as a white screen. Help please.

Boot into safe mode and take the option there to run system restore.

Press F8 at startup till the menu appears

System Restore?

Try in safe mode and system restore.

Snap and snap

Nothing coming up in safe mode either. and again by running sys config and 'Launch System Restore' - just white screen. Is there another way to launch restore from task manager?

Start, Run, type

c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

and press Enter.

Ran C:\ etc and just comes up with a white screen. Not running the program? Can access virtually anything through the task manager??

Do you have a windows CD?

If so, first try click here
scannow sfc - how to use SFC.EXE (system file checker)

If no luck, try a repair install: click here

Is this a retail copy of Nero ?

I would suggest running your AV in safe mode.
