    Default My desktop disappeared!

    I'm using windows XP and I think I might have been hit with a virus or spybot because my windows desktop disappeared and even if I load taskmanager and start up explorer, it comes up and then turns off again.

    This sucks!

    What he said. We need more information. This happened to me once and it was just one file being currupted. Wasn't even a virus, these things happen sometimes. I just replaced the file and everything was cool.

    It got into the Windows, just didn't show the icons or the menu. It was all blank. The key point is, can explorer.exe be run. I think that's the name of the service which opens all these things at the beginning of the session.
