I am trying to fix a friend's laptop. It is a Acer Aspire One Series. After logging on only the wallpaper appears,no taskbar, no icons. I've tried starting up in safe mode but this does not help. I have seen a couple of site suggesting that it may be a malware issue. One of the main problems is that it has no cd drive so I cannot install anything with a cd and it will not recognize a USB drive. I have tried to start explorer.exe through taskmanager but as soon as I bring up the 'Create New Task' window I get a error message saying that Windows TaskManager has encountered a problem and needs to close. Any help will be VERY appreciated!! :)
