Desktop disappeared

Dear Experts,

After login to my account I dont see any icons or even task bar. Only wall paper and mouse pointer are displayed. Win2000 runs ok until login window. After enter password, pc starts loading system software normaly but it dose not show any desktop. How can I get it back. Please advise.

mmiya,

1. Try to press Ctrl+Alt+Del when u see the wallpaper and select task manager > File Menu > New Task (run) > them type in the run window: explorer, it will display ur desktop and all things

2. if 1 does not work, try to logon with another account (has local admin prevlidges) and scan for viruses

3. if u did not fing any viruses, rename the profile of the old account under C:\Documents and Settings\user_name to user_name_old for example and try to logon with this normal account again
