Hi everyone, my laptop has been infected with a netsky virus (not the pc i am using now). When i switch it on I get my desktop picture but no icons or task bar, also when I ctrl alt del it says task manager has been disabled by your administrator (i am the administrator). i cant log off only go into hibernate. how do i get access to my files etc or reload when i get no files?

Please help me, i have assignments due soon!!

I had the exact same problem.
I was able to bring up task manager and loged off the current user and loged back in again.
This fixed the problem.

I hope this helps

Don't download anything named Smart Anti-Virus 2009 or anything similar in name. As user/idiot Yusuf knows, this is a rogue anti-spyware program originating from the Russian Federation which, in both trial and full versions, will report false positives and render one or several of your installed programs to cease functioning. There are multiple sources from which to download Smart Anti-Virus 2009 removal tools.

Hi,
the best way to solve this problem is :
press ALT+CTRL+DEL
then NEW TASK and enter C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386\msconfig
then you go to TOLLS and then SYSTEM RESTORE.
enter the date for restore and all ok after restart.

I have the same problem. Though I have not solved the issue, I discovered a temporary workaround accidentally. After you get the wallpaper, bring up the task manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+Delete. Then select the 'New Task' button and type 'cmd' to bring up command prompt. At the command prompt type 'explorer' to bring up windows explorer and voila! the icons should appear.

hey i came across this forum and wanted to say that i had the same issue and laughed at my solution. What happend is my daughter was playing around with the mouse and on windows 7 if you right click on the desktop and go to view you have an option to turn off the desktop icons. For anyone having this issue and if you have already tried the control alt delete approach try right clicking on your desktop and make sure the show desktop icons is selected. Other then that thanks for all the help and this was a very informative site.
