i recently ran a disk clean up on my computer.After it finished i deleted the suggested temporary files. after deletion, all the desktop icons disappeared,even the start up bar.the only way to shut down was thru the windows task manager. After restating same problem persists, it even shows background slide show of the computer photos.tried starting in safe mode, but in safe mode it just shows a black screen with moveable cursor.

Pls assist.

Try restoring windows to a previous state. Tried the Windows button on KB ?
Click New Task on Task Manager-Applications, type: cmd.exe
cd c:\windows\system32\restore
This will activate the restore program.
If not working try the same for cmd.exe then type: sfc /scannow
This will scan for missing or damaged windows files, have install disk in drive.

Or you can run install disk and choose add/change additional components.
Make sure to uncheck then check the relevant components.
