If you can boot into safemode and have things work correctly, we can probably troubleshoot further.

If you can't access the desktop do this:
CTRL + ALT + DELETE
File > Run > explorer.exe
That should bring the desktop up...it happened to me once or twice and it worked.

You can now delete and recreate your user account or use System Restore to restore your settings back to before you deleted those files.

what is that, how do i fix this problem??
I really can't say how much i appreciate all this help from you guys! PLEASE help me fix this computer

this is the same as the run command so try what I said from there.
Do you have a windowx xp disc? It will be easier to just re extract
the explorer.exe file and restore. but you need to have either the disc or the cab files on your computer
do you have restore turned on?

also startup and get your icons back as previous then go to my computer>
right click > explorer > this should give you a list of your computer drives
look under c drive do you have a folder called either windows xp or xp
we are looking to see if your cab files are on the computer

it's just a matter of us finding out how much you know about computers and
for us to come to a common Language.
Ok restore is a file your computer makes so if it is turned on you can go back to a point before your computer started to play up.
OK so we will take it step by step
1st one we try is when you start up the computer you should see a white bar running across the the bottom of the screen. When you see this start tapping the F8 Key (normally) at the top of the keyboard. This should bring you to a black and white screen with some options, such as Start computer in safe mode, Start computer in safe mode with network, One of these options is to start the Last known good configuration. Highlight these by moving down with the down arrow on your keyboard and hit enter.
This should then keep on loading.
Has this worked? Post back here if it has or has not worked, If not we will go to Step 2
