Cannot load desktop Error 0x80070570 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
        This morning I started up my computer and for some reason my desktop will not load. My desktop has no shortcuts or icons except for the recycle bin. My wallpaper still shows and other applications work but everything saved on my desktop does not show, is moved or misplaced or is lost. I do a lot of photoshop and digital photography for school so that could have caused the issue. I just bought my Asus computer less than a month ago.
         It showed the "Error 0x80070570" "corrupted "and "chkdsk". I tried to check my hard disk for errors but it wouldn't allow me to. It said something about scheduling for a check hard disk but once I restart my computer nothing works. I still get the same message everytime.

    -please help...so sad-

  • Hello,


    Before going any further, you might try restoring the system back to the point before the issue occurred.


    System Restore

    1) Before we start, please close all open files and close all open programs.

    2) Click Start; click All Programs; click Accessories; click System Tools; and click System Restore. The System Restore user interface should appear.

    3) Click Next.

    4) From the restore points available, select an appropriate restore point before problem occurs and click Next.

    5) Click Next again. The restore process will run and your system will restart automatically.

    If the problem persists, please continue with the instructions below to narrow down the issue.
