Explorer.exe is not running. When manually starting the process, it starts but then is quickly shut down once again.
Icons do not appear on the desktop at all. All attempts to fix this have not worked.
Scans have been run using the following software and the problem still persists:
Ad-Aware SE Personal
Webroot Spy Sweeper
Trend Micro Antivirus
Regristry clean with TuneUp Utilities
Disk cleanup was ran before all scans, as well as CCleaner and TuneUp Utilities cleaner.
