just downloaded and installed the windows mega updates on my desktop pc, now its not working,
on start up i usually just get the picture that is the background on my desktop and the mouse arrow, if i leave the computer on long enough then the screen saver kicks in, but thats it, sometimes i can get task manager up via ctrl, alt, delete,
occasionally, the desktop comes up but only the clock on the task bar and i can't open anything,
i've tried to start with - last known good menu, and used system restore but still nothing,
if i open task manager there seems to be a lot fewer processes than normal (27), i can start in safe mode but other than that nothing.
my computer is running xp home
any ideas please
ran MSCONFIG, all but a few of my services are stopped and there are just a few items in the start up section, i tried to enable these but it will not let me, if i run task manager only 28 processes are running and the cpu is at 0%
