My laptop has stopped working. When I start it up it allows me to login but then it shows my desktop without any icons/shortcuts. When I press the windows button, nothing happens. The only thing I can do is open the task manager. I have read on many forums that it might have been a virus that removes the registry association on files. When I open task manager, I can open “new task” and then I can see my files when I browse. When I click on anything I get “this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action”. I can not open a cmd prompt or anything else. Does anyone have idea’s on what I can try next?
