Hello, when I login,
1. My desktop remains blank without any icons.
2. clt+alt+del shows all choices except task manager - so I am allowed to reboot and shutdown
3. When I enter in safe mode cannot see desktop nor icons
4. Ran Norton Antivirus 2007 boot with CD - no virus found
5.Prior to crash desktop went RED, hence I rebooted and then the issues

Any ideas on what I should do?
Thanksin advance

quite possibly a virus, try to scan your pc with a better av like nod32 (google for portable nod32), if that doesn't help try to format drive and re-install windows

Before re-installing, I'd try a repair install.

REinstalling windows means all of your documents, music and pictures DELETE!!!
