Hello everyone,
i im in trouble, cuz i cannot access my OS, but only in safe mode. I was trying to watch a video twice and the blue screen of doom got me....Now when i turn on my pc i can only see the wallpaper all the icons, toolbar and start menu on the desktop are gone!!I tried antyspyware, antimalaware, combofix, CHCKDSK/F but nothing...I just run out of options. I read somewhere, it can be that explorer has gone missing from the registry, not sure. Please can you help me? Thank you so much for your time and support. :)  :hello:  .

My PC specs:
Window XP professional
500gb sumsung hdd
Sapphire HD 4550
Asus mobo PK5Q

PS: I do not have a sub-category cuz i built my baby, myself..They want me to put something. ;)

Can you use "System Restore" and restore the computer to an earlier known good date? In Win XP this would be under Accessories.

A system restore or windows repair are good options.

If 'System Restore' does not work, try using "Guide for removing malware" by aford10 - it worked well for me.
