The FBI has been harassing and mentally torturing me for
two and half years since around Oct 01. The FBI has
gps tracking devices in my car, tracked me like an animal,
wire tapped my phone and has been monitoring all my web
activities for 2.5yrs and completely dehumanized me.
The FBI agents have been following me 24X7X60X60 everywhere
including grocery stores, retail stores, malls,
restaurants and movie
theaters. The FBI agents who were following me have at
verbally and racially abused me in retail store and
grocery store
parking lots by shouting at me inanities.
One FBI agent once tried to ram into my car from behind
with a
comcast van and came within one inch of hitting me from
There was no traffic altercation between us and there was
traffic on the road. The FBI agent in the comcast van
never tried
to overtake me and was very angry at me and hated me for
no reason.
I have been unemployed for close to 3 yrs and When I send
to potential employers, the sadistic FBI agents who were
my email and websurfing, have been badmouthing and
assasinating my
character with recruiters and jeopardizing my job
for the last 2.5 yrs.
The FBI has been interfering in my personal life for no
The FBI has completely destroyed and denied me any sort
of privacy for 2.5 yrs. Each and every word I type and
post on
the web is being monitored and each and every email tapped.
The sadistic FBI has forced me to live like a virtual
for 2.5 yrs with zero privacy and 24 hr real time video
on me. I cant talk to friends, family members and
employers without the fear of being over heard and
I am afraid of doing everything and anything without fear.

I am not a terrorist. I am not even a muslim. I dont have
any muslim friends. I am not a drug smuggler. I did not
anybody. I did not threaten to kill anybody. I dont have
record like gottis or escobars. I do not have any prior
criminal record. Why should I suffer all this harassment
constant loss of privacy for such an extended period of
I feel completely naked infront of the world and it has
like that for a couple of years.
I am not familiar with US legal system that much. Can
tell me why the sadistic FBI has such ridiculous
amount of power to harass and mentally torture me. WHy do
FBI has the right to think they are God and they are
always right.
WHy should my life depend on what the FBI thinks of me.
Why should
I be put through so much pain and suffering. Why do the
FBI has the
right to deny me privacy for so long. Who gave the FBI
the right to interfere
in my personal life and bad mouth and assasinate my
character with
potential employers. Why are the FBI agents telling
employers not
to hire me. As it is, it is very difficult to find a job
in this
economy and whatever few opportunities I get are being
by these fbi sadists.
On what basis, the FBI installed a gps device in my car
and tracking
me like an animal. On what basis did the FBI wire tap my
On what basis did the FBI tap and monitor my web
and email for 2.5 yrs. I feel as if I was put in a 6x6
cell with
24X7 video focused on me and fbi agents standing around
the cell
and constantly poking me with sticks.
One undercover FBI agent sent an email and called me a
His email is (e-mail address removed) and his ebay id is

Lot of FBI agents are harrassing me 24X7 in vehilces with
michigan title plates UFX 210 (white SUV), XRA 155 (black

Assume everything I said is true and somebody with legal
and expertise help me out here.
I do not have access to us.legal and misc.legal usenet
news groups. I would appreciate if somebody can do a cut
and paste this into us.legal and misc.legal news groups.

I can't remember the exact choices that you get, but you
need to right click on an open space on your desktop. You
will get a menu, one of the choices deals with making the
desktop icons disappear and re-appear. That is probably
your problem. It might have been hit accidently and you
didn't know it. Hope that helps. Wayne B.


I tried that myself and it didn't work.

Not only are all the icons missing, but the task bar as

Using the task manager, I am able to start indivdual
programs, like Excel, Word, etc. I installed SP4 and
that didn't help at all.

I Know How To Fix It!!!!

Hey, umm yea i think i had the same thing not to long ago, and what you need to do is.........

-if a program screwed up on you and it shut down on its own, or u forced it to, and then u lost your icons... well theres the problem, you need to re-open that program, and close it properly.

-if that does not work then you must go to http://www.stardock.com/products/iconpackager/ and download icon packager, once installed, you must change your icon to one of the icon skins that come with he 30 day trial, dosnt matter if its ugly... just pick one, then those icons will work on your desktop, so if you want to keep the ones they give you well you can, but if not. just click on the standard windows icons thing and then u should have all your icons back! YAY!!!.... im surprized i am the first one to write this in a thread.... i hope this works, if not then ur fawked...

so when logging in you dont get anything on screen?

this sounds like your explorer.exe process isnt running, you can check to see what your machine is starting up as the shell by opening regedit via the task Manager then goto the following key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

in there find a value named shell, make sure that this says Explorer.exe, if it says Explore then this is your problem, just change it to Explorer.exe and restart your system and log back on

hope this helps

Easy solution

You just need to go to a clear space of your desktop.
Right click on the mouse.
Appearance Tab.
Check use large icons.

And then do the same but uncheck large icons.

Hope it helps.
