    Hi guys dunno if you can help me with this?

    My icons and taskbars suddenly disappeared about an hour ago, when I restart I get my login screen ok but once I log in I get a black screen with mousse arrow that moves around. If I Ctrl alt del I can shut down and which point all the icons are there but I can't access anything because the machine is shutting down. If I cancel the shut down I then get my wallpaper but again no icons start bar etc... If I goto to safe mode I get a black screen and working mouse icon and that's it! Task manager will not come on and right click is also disabled? Any help would be appreciated.

    If you press Ctrl+Alt+Del, do you see an option Start Task Manager ?
    If yes, click it.
    Then click Processes tab > right click at explorer.exe > click End Process > click Applications tab > New Task... > in the Open box, type explorer.exe > OK
    Is desktop back to normal ?

    Do I assume that you do not see the Start button either ?

    Also try pressing Ctrl + Shift + Esc.
    Does Task Manager appear ?
    If yes, run the steps I gave you earlier.

    Have you created a System Repair Disk when you first got your Win 7 computer ?
    Have you done any System Image backup ?
    Do you know how to access your computer's Recovery Partition? If no, what is the make of your computer?

    Sorry mate its no particular make and I haven't done any backups. Think I'm just gonna have to wipe it or buy a mac! Lol.

    Bugs me that I can access everything for about 3 seconds when I shutdown but as soon as I cancel t he shut down I just get my wallpaper an no icons again. Just one of them things I think.

    Oh. In that case, please ask your mate to re-install the operating system.
    That's the only way.
