No Start Bar Or Icons in User Partitions on XP

  mick wilding 18:45 16 Oct 2006

I have a Medion 2800 computer running XP home (SP2). Everything loads fine up to the user screen. Then, when a user is selected it loads but all that comes up is the desktop background. No start bar or icons appears.

The cursor works, as does ctrl-alt-delete - This is the only way to exit the user section or closed the computer down.

Will it start in Safe Mode - restart and keep tapping the F8 key before the Windows screen appears. Then try logging in as the Administrator (this account should be present on the Welcome screen). Then try running this click here
