Help!!! No desktop icons, no start menu!!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • This morning I start my vista business edtion and suddenly all the desktop icons and the start menu are gone !!! There was only a file browser on the screen when the system has fully booted up. And behind the browser, it was totally dark, even right click on the dark won't take any effect!!!!

    Then i've done the following trying to resolve it:

    • I checked the task manager, and found explorer.exe is there.
    • I restored the system to an earlier point, restart the system, but it still couldn't help.
    • I restarted the system in safe mode ,  it's still the same --- a single file browser with total dark behind !
    • I checked the device manager, all devices are working fine.
    • I checked the event log, no relevant critical system or application events out there
    • I searched all around the internet and found no solution.

    The problem still remains there.

    It's driven me crazy!!

    Anybody please help me !!


    Many many thanks!!

  • Have you type the product key? Your Vista now is enter in Reduced Functionality Mode,please check your Vista activation.

    If you ensure your Vista isn't enter in Reduced Functionality Mode, I think is your Vista's explorer.exe was destruction, You should use other computer to copy Vista's explorer.exe to your Harddisk's Vista's Windows folder from the Vista DVD
