I'm pretty sure the title is self explainatory. I went to sleep last night
with the computer on and when I woke up this morning the blue screen was
there. I restarted and when Windows loaded the taskbar and the desktop icons
were missing. It's been like this all day. I've done System Restores and
uninstalled recent things that I've installed.

I'm not sure what you will need to know in order to be able to answer or
help me with my problem so just ask for specifics and I'll do my best to tell
you them.

Please help, It would mean alot.

Visit http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm and scroll down to
Item No. 195 (right column), click on "Restore Desktop Icons and
Taskbar".

Install the registry fix, then reboot your computer.
