Hi,

Try booting in Safe-Mode (Hit <F8> key before Windows boots up to access boot menu)

Does this work? Is so, run Start > Run > MSCONFIG and set to Diagnostics Startup.
Does Diagnostics Startup work?

I have tried to run in safe mode but exactly the same thing occurs. Just the wall paper appears on the screen. I am able to reach the screen to pick the "Safe Mode" but then nothing.

Hi,

The only thing I can suggest is to do a repair installation of WinXP. Boot off the WinXP cd and select "R" when asked, to perform a repair install.

Hi,

If you have System Restore enabled you can try to restore from a Command Prompt

Starting System Restore Tool from Command Prompt
1. Start your computer to Safe Mode with Command Prompt.
NOTE: You must log on as the administrator or a user that has administrator rights.
2. At the command prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and then press ENTER.
3. Follow the instructions on the screen to begin restoring your computer to a previous, functional state.

Hi all,
I finally was able to fix my computer over the weekend. I thought I had the Ad ware problem but it turns out I was missing a file.  I remembered I had gotten an error message befor all my problems started. I went to a friend and copied the file it said I was missing. The file name is SHDOCVW.DLL. I was able to activate my task manager by pressing Ctrl>alt>Delete and found my System 32 folder. I copied the file to there and magically my desk top returned.  lesson to be learned --pay attention to error messages.
