URGENT HELP REQ'D - System Restore

  pepe 12:49 17 Jul 2006

My daughter has somehow corrupted my computer running XP home.

No desktop items load and there is no 'start' box to access the control panel. Loading in safe mode only allows me to use the command prompt. Is there any way of using this to access the system restore?

At the command prompt type


and press Enter.

Thanks VoG™ just the job. Unfortunately this has not fixed the porblem. I ran 'Registry Mechanic'yesterday and fear this may be the cause of the problem. When I start the computer I log on and only ger the desktop background - no icons at all. Any ideas how to fix this?

If you go to a command prompt and type

C:\Program Files\Registry Mechanic\RegMech.exe

it should launch Registry Mechanic. You can then click the Restore button to go back.

Thanks again VoG™. Unfortunately this has not resolved problem. Still have no Task bar or shortcuts - will start another thread.
