Get whatever file / files you need to save.
Now try this:
When the pc is starting up, look for the Boot Option key, usually F12 or F10 to boot from the CD drive.

Last time I started it from there, it did as before-missing icons, toolbar not showing start/clock.
I realize in my frustration and jumping ahead with those scans it looks like I'm ignoring your work trying to help me get this fixed. I apologize for that, won't do that again.
Wound up doing another repair install. It restarted, desktop looked like the first one-icons there, some gif images missing, toolbar looked of-start button, clock, quick start buttons as original on taskbar. Shut it off, left it alone. I just restarted it, removed the OS cd. When it started up the Windows xp image came up, showed the loading page-windows xp 29 sec highlighted I hit enter-started to load. The screen stayed black longer than usual-like it hesitated to load. The blue microsoft screen came up, the desktop has no icons and that dark brown taskbar.
