Lost all desktop icons, start menu, and taskbar

I can't open task manager with crtl+alt+delete. I've tried various progams, software, which has slowed down my computer. Can't uninstall them, this kind thing I downloaded, was a scam, cant even close it. Please respond with a solution. (Don't have a CD that restarts my computer, only some anti-virus progam CD that I can't even open or work.)

  1. Boot your computer into Safe Mode with Networking. Go to www.malwarebytes.org and get Malwarebytes (the free version is fine).

    Install, update, and run a full scan. Delete everything it finds.

    If that fails, get the AVG Rescue CD (see below) and burn to CD. Boot from that CD, update, and perform a full scan. Delete what it finds.

    Good luck!!!
