Hi, you guys are my last hope!
I have Windows XP and after removing on of those internet programs that seem to automatically invade your computer, I have nothing on my desktop anymore. No icons, no task bar and I can't right click either. I found out through the task manager, that all my files are still there though. The bad thing is, that my system restore was turned off before that happened Undecided(I did not know that since I never had to use it). So, that is out of the question. I am guessing a file was destroyed or damaged when I deleted that one program.


Does anyone here know what file could be damaged? I thought it might be the explorer.exe but I don't want to just replace it (not to mention that I would not know how without my explorer) and lose all my files.

I bought a new computer but I want to still get the files from the old computer to the new one. I did a workplace sharing thing, but I can only access the shared document folder. Is there a way to access from one computer all the files from the other one?


I am thankful for any help you can give me..

Hi,

From what I understand, you can access your shared folder from this 'damaged' Windows system, right?

Go to the good system and instead of accessing the share, try to access the hidden share on the C: drive.

Instead of going to '\\computername\sharename' try '\\computername\c$'

Admin, thank you for your response.I did not know that you can access it that way. I wish I would be brainy like that...EmbarrassedSad
It had nothing to do with any of these things. I found out that it is a spy program I deleted and as soon as you deleted it, the desktop icons and the task bar will disappear. There will be an entry under program files\ddm. You need to delete it and hunt it down and end it in the registry (you have to start in the save modus for that) you need to find the Sysu.exe under this ddm directory and delete it!!!!

Here is the link in case someone else has this problem.

Thank you all though for your site. Now I know where to go if the next problem will pop up (and we all know it will)
