Hi guys, in an attempt to speed up my laptop I've lost my desktop! Can you help? I went into task manager and deleted a process but don't know which or how to get it back working so now my desktop is a black screen. Can it be fixed? Thanks

Oh and my little windows start up key doesn't work either, I'm on vista if that makes any difference.thank you

Threads like these need more info
What operating system do you have, XP, Vista, Windows?
Can you get task manager up and running again?
Was it explorer.exe you killed by any chance?
#5
Will that do it or is it just a guess? Cheers

Do a system restore to the last check point before you **** it up.
#7
I'm on vista and explore.exe, well it could have been but I honestly don't know
#8
if its just your desktop, run task manager hit file run and type explorer, should bring desktop backup
#9
What is a system restore and how do I do that? Cheers
#10
Try and remember when you last saw it - that's what I do when I lose things
#11
Press ctrl+alt+del if you can to get task manager running.
Sounds to me like explorer.exe has been killed but could be several other processes
If it is that that you killed, a reboot will be fine and restart that process

To be fair, it could be asked, why did you kill a process/es you don't know what they do? Sometimes, you need to take your time with pc's and not rush them and that is not meant as condescending, more voice of, i have made the same mistake myself ;)

Hmmmmmmm restart isn't looking promising, looks like I've done a proper number on it this time!
#16
Hahaha here is me thinking I'm the only one!
#17
Why, what's happened on reboot?
Maybe worth starting in safe mode
Press F8 (for most pc's) during boot up......
#18
Hang on! Just a moment,i might be back in a minute, on my pc.
