Try "System Restore" tool.

Go to - Start---Programs---Accessories---Accessibility---System Restore.

ctrl+alt+del and click on process tab.
Check to see if you see a process by the name of "explorer.exe"
Then if you do not see it go back to Applications and Click on new task.
Type in explorer.exe and hit enter.
Now your icons should be back up.

Hi Neel2k5...Welcome to G2G...

First off...you need to get rid of the P2P apps...you can't imagine the nasties that can get to your machine through these services!

Restart your machine and while it is booting tap the F8 key. When the options screen comes up, choose "Last Known Good Configuration" and hit Enter. If this allows you get your Windows going, use the system restore feature to restore to a time before the problems began.

The application has failed to start because UxTheme.dll was not found. Re-Installing this application might fix this problem. :)

Ok Neel2k5...let's try something else...

Can you navigate on your machine at all?...ie: can you open "My Computer" for instance? (Perhaps by pressing the Windows Start key between Ctrl and Alt)

If you can't access My Computer, can you get to Task Manager (Ctrl + Alt + Del)? AND do you have your Windows XP install disk? If the answer is yes to both of these, put your cd in the drive, bring up the task manager, click "file", then "new task", and type "sfc /scannow" without the quotes (Note the space bewtween sfc and /) then press "Enter" to replace the missing system file. When the progress bar is finished...restart your machine.

Hi Neel2k5...

I'm going to need a little more information. What is the make and model of your machine. There are ways to repair/restore your computer from a partition mounted cd image, but procedures vary by manufacturer and model. Let me know what we are working on and we'll see if we can't get it up and running.
