    Hi,
    I just came back up from a disc dump, don't know the
    cause but my start button and all the desktop icons so
    not appear. Only the desktop background loads when I load
    up from a user name. Any thoughts?!?

    u can make them come back... go to task manager, then
    Proccesess and look for explorer.exe erase it.
    Then go to New task (run) and type on it explorer.exe ok.
    and everything will come back... don't worry...
