lost icons, only wallpaper is visible

My computer is suddenly extremely slow during start-up and shutdown,
and when it does eventually start-up the wallpaper is the only thing
that is visible. I can access the task manager (by ctrl, alt, delete)
and there are processes running, but nothing shows. (Windows XP is my
operating system on my dell dimension.)

I believe the program stems from an ad-aware program that I ran
previously in the day, as it deleted too much im afraid.


While trying to restart my computer, on one occassion the icons
eventually showed up and the taskbar appeared as if it was from
windows 98 and I could still not access the internet, the computer was
just as slow and it was evident that a problem was still in existence.

Anyone have any suggestions???

I've also tried a system restore, but that doesn't work either.

Put your xp in the cd and restart your PC. Hit F8 to get you to system
repair. Run it and it will fix the registry problems.

In future use this ad-aware http://www.lavasoft.com and make sure it
quarantine option is on so you can restore if anything happens.
With my expirience Ad-Aware SE is safe
