Taskbar and Desktop Icons Dissapear After Closing Explorer Windows.

Q: Taskbar and Desktop Icons Dissapear After Closing Explorer Windows.

Hi,
I'm running a Dell Inspiron 6400 with Windows XP Home on it.
My problem is as such:
When ever I close an explorer window, the taskbar and desktop icons disappear for a few seconds...Its quite annoying, and it also closes any other Windows I have open.
Programs don't seem to be affected...

Has anyone come across this problem? And are there any solutions?
Much thanks for any help rendered.

Preferred Solution: Taskbar and Desktop Icons Dissapear After Closing Explorer Windows.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I booted up my computer today to find that the toolbar and desktop icons mysteriosly dissapear and reappear. The screen goes totally blank aside from the desktop background for a few secons, and then everything comes back only to dissappear again. Any programs that are open stay open. I ran a virus scan and restarted it, but when it booted back up everything dissappeared and stayed gone. I then restarted again and it's back to coming and going. Any ideas as to what might be causing this and how to fix it?

Thanks

Chris

I start off my computer the last two days and I notice that my Desktop background shows up, but not my explorer.exe and Desktop icons. I have to do CTRL+ALT+DEL and close explorer.exe and then start a new process of explorer.exe then my icons and explorer.exe shows up.I did recently try to update my Graphics Card. My Graphics is : ATI RADEON 200 Series (0x5954) and hasn't been updated from years ago but decided to upgrade it a week ago. I did it and that's how my screen got messed up. Where I downloaded the ATI from : http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/generic...item=ob-34805-1Computer : Compaq Presario 061

A:Desktop Icons dissapear

Try system restore at a point before the problem began. Try creating new icons and delete the old. All shortcuts should be easy to create.

Hi guys.

I am going crazy with this problem of mine. See screenshot on how it looks like. This problem just occurred yesterday.

Here is my ancient laptop's specs:

Intel Pentium 4 - M (1.9GHz, single-core)
512MB RAM
40GB HDD
ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 (32MB)

Here is a list of what I already did:

*Copied explorer.exe from another laptop; didn't work, so it is safe to assume that it is not the problem
*Full scan with latest Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (v1.45), found nothing
*Safe Mode, still no icons
*Cleared IconCache.db but to my surprise, it was not rebuilt.

In the case I have lacked any information, kindly inform me. To my dismay, this is the longest time that I had spent troubleshooting.

Best regards.

A:No Icons in Desktop/Taskbar/Explorer

Hello Brionac, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since this has just happened, you might do a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened to hopefully fix it for you.

Hope this helps,

After installing a new theme, I noticed later on that all the icons on the taskbar, explorer, and the desktop were missing. The programs all work fine, with the title showing, but explorer is very laggy and it's incredibly hard to navigate through my picture folder without thumbnails.

And for some reason, I cannot open the start menu from the taskbar.

Photo Album - Imgur

I tried multiple system restores, and that did not fix the problem.

Thanks for answering, it's very much appreciated.

A:All icons on explorer, taskbar, and desktop are not showing anymore.

Hello and welcome,

You've done multiple system restores and get the same theme? Or what happens?

Click on start, and on the search bar type in cmd, once it appears right-click it and select run as administrator, upon the prompt type in sfc /scannow, it will request to scan on restart, do so.

Give an update please.

Hello, I have a problem with my Windows XP computer. All my icons and taskbar has dissapeared. Its usually can be fixed by opening explorer.exe which wont open. I have tried multiple ways and the only way to access programs is by task manager.

I currently haven't got a HijackThis Log which I will upload a.s.a.p. There are also no viruses and no hardrive errors so I'm pretty stumped on what I should do.

Kind Regards,

Hi I'm having trouble when I load my side of the computer and the only way I can access programs is through Windows Task Manager. All that will load is the desktop background picture. I have looked up various solutions - it seems the explorer.exe process is missing or unable to be located when I try to run it. I have ran an AVG scan and two infection were found and supposedly healed. These were C:\Programfiles\MicrosoftCommon\wuauclt.exe (Win32\Heur)and C:\WINDOWS\System32\ntos (trojanhorsePakes_c.RZ). Have not yet ran any other scans and really need futher advice on what to do next! I have Spybot and Adaware but have not yet ran a scan since before the computer started playing up. I've also had to manually open Zonealarm so that I have a functioning firewall :/

I've only had this problem once before - I think it was yesterday and I panicked and just turned off the computer at the switch. Restarted, everything was fine and the toolbar &desktop was there. Today it was working fine until I turned it on about 2 hours ago






I've seen something like this once but could not fix it, however try the following. At the blank desktop (just wallpaper) bring up task manager ctrl-alt-delete. You should see some tasks but explorer.exe is missing.

Click new task, enter explorer.exe and press enter. The rest of the desktop will load, icons, taskbar and menubar. You now have a chance to fix whats wrong.
If you can run a scan with either SysInternals autorun of HijackThis this will be your best chance, compare each running task with google, you may be able to pinpoint the cause(s).

You may however be able to create a new user in control panel with admin rights and copy your files across from the old account to the new account.
I'm not sure exactly where in the boot process explorer.exe is called from, but your machie has been compromised, and sometimes its easier to format and reinstall.

The machine I had a look at for a friend also had a folder on the root C: drive just called ! This folder contained hundreds of p0rn type avi's but worse still refused to be delted recreating itself on reboot. Check for any strange folder names called ! may also be worth you running msconfig and hecking the contents of win.ini system.ini, startup services and programs.
Good luck.

Hello

I have some trouble with thumbnail windows in tasks bar. A few days ago, maybe after official last windows update, but not sure, I found a very vexing bug in task bar. When I hover on task bar icons, the thumbnail windows pop-up and when I hover in it all the preview windows is goind under the opened windows but the thumbnail windows is still accessible so I even can close it but I can't see it. It's very inconvenient especially with couple of opened windows.

Here I attached a screen
How to solve it? Maybe I need to edit reg but what exactly?

A:Problem! Thumbnail windows in taskbar dissapear

I have the exact same problem. The same issue extends to the Alt-Tab windows as well, it pops under all of the open windows. It seems to have started with the new Windows 8.1 Update 1.

Edit: It's curious that it does NOT pop under metro apps so I think it may be caused by this new functionality in Windows 8.1 U1. This occurs on both my laptop and desktop which share no common hardware.

Hello,

I am having the problem of windows booting to NO taskbar or desktop icons, I have run malware bytes and Avast5 and there os no reported problems.

Sadly I have run combofix before I saw all the warnings NOT to do that....WHY?

I have the log report is anyone willing to explain why one should not run combofix?

Any assistance would greatly be appreciated!!

A:Windows boots to NO taskbar or desktop icons

Hello,is anyone willing to explain why one should not run combofix?Sure. To quote Papakid:Running ComboFix by yourself is like performing open heart surgery on yourself--the scalpel and other surgical tools that is ComboFix is meant to be wielded by a highly trained surgeon only in emergencies or dire circumstances. When the surgeon is thru s/he leaves the room. So combofix should be removed from a system once it has accomplished its job, unlike an AV that is there to protect you from future infections.. . . CF does make some alterations to your system if you run it. Even if you had no malware removed and run the uninstall command, some things may be different now on your system. I can tell you that one thing is that all your restore points will be flushed out and a new one created. There is a good reason to do that when you have a severe infection--but if you aren't infected you might need those restore points.That said, please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at step 6.Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Since you have run ComboFix, please include the ComboFix log in the new topic. Please be sure to include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to try to resolve them.If you cannot produce any of the other logs, then please create the new topic anyway, include the information that you were unable to produce the other logs and why and include the ComboFix log along with a description of your computer issues.Orange Blossom

I have Windows Ultimate x I wrote this post on Techspot originally and decided I should also ask it here hopefully I Explorer to icons multiple Windows Taskbar Pin can get this solved it's driving me crazy Before anyone says this is impossible it's not I had it set up like this before and I reinstalled Windows now I can't get it back to the way it was I know it was a pain the first time around too though Ok basically I want a taskbar icon that when clicked opens up one of my harddrives When I click this icon I want the window to open using that icon not as a separate item in the taskbar For example see attached Pin multiple Windows Explorer icons to Taskbar images The first image is what Pin multiple Windows Explorer icons to Taskbar it should do when I click to Pin multiple Windows Explorer icons to Taskbar open it the second is what it should not do the little mp player icon is the E drive shortcut opening the window changes the icon to a harddrive Now if I change the target of the shortcut to this C Windows explorer exe e root E Then it works like it should however there's a problem I want more than one shortcut The other shortcut is to an FTP site I actually thought to save the original shortcut from before I reinstalled Windows and the target for it is this C Windows explorer exe e root ftp username password mysite com with the actual site and credentials obviously being changed here This also works as it should opening the window using the icon Here's the problem though both work when they're the only ones on the taskbar but if I put them both on the taskbar at the same time then whichever one I added first takes precedence By that I mean that if I add the shortcut to the E drive then add the shortcut to the FTP site clicking the E drive shortcut opens the window using the correct icon but clicking the FTP site shortcut opens the window using the E drive icon I know this may sound like a trivial little thing but it's possible I know it is and it's just how I want it set up Can anyone help me out please I read somewhere that I could make a copy of explorer exe rename it explorer exe and point one of the shortcuts to it and that would solve the problem Well I did that and it didn't fix it it just reversed it now clicking on the E shortcut opens a window using the FTP shortcut It doesn't make sense and I had it working before I just don't remember what I did

My son gave me his Presario 700 laptop. Yesterday I turned it on and all it would do is go to the wallpaper and then nothing. I do not get any icons or start button. I was able to get on line by going to the ctrl,alt,del and getting the task window and doing a search.

I can not find the restore disk and my son is in Irag, so I can not ask him where it is. My question is, is there a way to restore by using the task window to find the file?

Thanks,
Armymom
 

A:Windows desktop doesn`t show. No icons or taskbar etc.

Is this Windows XP? I guess what you could do is search for rstrui.exe, it's the system restore utility, and try that out. You can find it in C:\Windows\system32\Restore (at least on my computer.)

Hi,

I am facing this problem with my laptop. It seems it has something to do with the Winfixer problem.

I am unable to see any of my desktop icons or the taskbar. Neither can I right click on my desktop. It has totally deactivated. I am using my laptop through the task manager-->New Task option. Please help as I have tried to work on it and have finally given up.

A:Desktop icons and taskbar disappeared [MOVED FROM WINDOWS]

A temporary solution may be task manager, new task, then type "explorer".
That should bring up the familiar windows explorer so you can don't have to use task manager all the time. As for why this has happened, not sure, will look up your particular problem.

You reinstalled Windows and have a black screen, can't open programs how are you running Windows update?

Brand and model of the PC?

Did you reinstall using a Windows disc or a recovery partition on the hard drive?

I'm never the one to ask, but I don't know what happened. I tried looking online but I couldn't find any solutions. It seems like all my icons (including folders) are not showing up in windows explorer, taskbar, or the desktop anymore. This isn't too big a problem, but navigating through my picture library is very complicated without thumbnails.

My PC is pretty heavily customized.
I also cannot open the start menu from the taskbar anymore. I click the startorb and nothing appears.

Screenshots

Also, while I was uploaded the three screenshots to imgur, the icons showed up on the popup to windows explorer.

(Note: I don't know whether this problem involves malware or not, so I made the exact same thread in the Hijack This Forum also)

My computer uses Windows XP with McAfee Security Center.

When I turned my computer on yesterday the loading process stopped before it would run after it got to my background. Thus, the CPU stops as if everything is done loading and the startup process has finished, but my taskbar and desktop icons don't appear. Windows Task Manager is the only thing that I can get to appear.

Through Windows Task Manager I can perform tasks with CTRL-ALT-DEL, so I am able to access the internet and Hijack This. System Restore hasn't worked to fix the problem either, as I've done it 3 times and it hasn't helped. I think I have the same problem as this guy:

A:desktop icons closing after opening

Icons don't open and close. Perhaps you mean that the program associated with the icon shortcut opens and then closes.
Select one Icon and its associated program that opens then closes.
1. Right click the icon and select target.
2. Paste the full path of the address that is in the Target box here. I'm trying to determine if your icons are corrupt. In other words, a new shortcut has to be made from the Program in the All Programs list.

Ever since I connected a projector into the spare VGA output on it the desktop icons move whenever I close the lid down during use or before its completely shut down.

The projector was running at 1024x768 as an extended desktop, and I have since checked all the settings in my display properties and NVidia settings, but nothing seems to be wrong there...

Any suggestions?

When ever i use IE9 after closing it, all the icons on my desktop are not accessible. Start menu works but nothing else. I have to restart my machine every time after using IE9. Any solutions?

I had an issue after running Spybot due to some symptoms of a virus, where my Taskmanager closed automatically. I followed the tutorial with combofix and it corrected the issue, but now I it appears that my browser has been hijacked. I am posted the combofix log for review. It looks pretty clean to me. Wonder if you see anything I don't.

I appreciate the help.

Does anyone know how to hide the Desktop Icons showing up in Windows Explorer?

I'm not referring to hiding the Desktop Icons that are hidden with Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization, but the icons that appear when you select Desktop in Windows Explorer's Navigation Pane ... please see attached screenshot.

Thanks much !!!

You may have to kill any process named explorer in the processes tab first. If there's already an explorer process, starting it will only open a new windows explorer window.

Another thing you should check is the event viewer. Go to control panel (classic view), administrative tools, event viewer. Look in the application log, and look for any event that indicates an explorer crash. Double click it, and look at the report; sometimes it may indicate the module that causes the crash (for example a .dll). If it's a known program you recently installed you could uninstall it, or at least disable any explorer extensions that are part of it.

Hi all,

This is my first post. My computer is missing a desktop, taskbar and all the icons. When the computer comes on it loads fine. I click on my user name or any other user and even guest and they're all the same. I can't access any documents there are no icons and I can't do control+alt+delete.

Do I have any hope of saving my computer there are a lot of files I would like to retrieve.

I am able to access the internet on the computer only because i still get pop ups and i use those to go online.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,


C.

I saw a thread on here about this issue and did some of the things suggested, but obviously didn't know what to do with the information I gathered. I was online chatting one day and my icons and taskbar vanished. I can still get around through the task manager. Explorer.exe will not stay up. I've downloaded hijackthis and winpfind3u, also shellexview (because another site told me to). I ran them and saved the info., but none of it means anything to me.

About a week ago I restarted my system and I had No taskbar or desktop icons. The only I can access anything is through the task manager ( ctrl-alt-del ). and then New task, run etc. I've read several threads on the subject at varoius sites and it seems that there are no fixes for this problem, although I think $teve from this forum is on the right track. He asked another member/ guest at what did they just install when the problem occurred.
I say this because I had just updated my ATI video card drivers and installed a program as an add on calles Earthsim. Shortly after I started experianceing the problem

Hi there. After my pc crashed while playing Command and Conqer 3, every time I boot up my pc there are no desktop icons or taskbar, and its really really slow. I can bring up ctrl alt and delete task manager.
All i can see is my desktop background.

Things I have tried:
system restore
repair install windows xp
download some tweaks from kellys corner
virus scan
SFC /scannow


I really am clueless as to what to do, and if it came to a format how would I get my important files onto cd? or how do i get into 'my computer'?


Thanking in advance,

I just did a load of windows updates now when I start my machine I have no taskbar or desktop icons.

Explorer.exe does not start automatically but if you go into task manager you can start it (it opens onto 'my documents').

Everything seems to open fine from here - iexplorer can be started and I can get online.

Also when I right click on the desktop I get nothing.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Please help me with this. This morning I turned on my PC and there was no desktop icons (just one stats.php-id_n2v....which was not there before), or taskbar, just wallpaper. I tried to open task manager with ctrl+alt+del but no luck. I can right click on desktop and make shortcut, make new folder but I can not open it. I can delete it. Show desktop icons is checked.
I started my PC in safe mode, and all my files are there.
I also restored my PC to a previous point and still nothing. Just wallpaper with that one icon.
Please help me. I tried to find a solution online, but every solution includes access to task manager with ctrl+alt+del, which I can not access.

A:No Desktop Icons and Taskbar

Try restarting the computer again. If the taskbar does not appear when you restart then you may have something interrupting the login process. If the taskbar comes up but the Internet does not work it may need to be repaired. System Restore has not been helpful to me either in instances like this.

BTW, is SBC Yahoo anti-virus software?

A:No Desktop Icons or Taskbar - HELP!

Sounds like you have a problem with explorer. Hit Ctrl+Alt+Del and open task manager. On the processes tab look for explorer.exe. If it is there, end the process. Either way, next go to File, New Task and type in explorer.exe. What happens??

I had a computer at work that did this once as a result of a virus. If this gets you going again, immediately run your virus/malware programs.

Hi, I have a kiosk PC that is looking pretty good however I have two outstanding issues. 
 
The users can still right click on applications on the taskbar and receive a context menu even though I've disabled the context menu in the group policy editor.
User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Start Menu and Taskbar/Remove access to the context menus for the taskbar - Enabled
 
And I can't figure out how to remove the "show desktop" icon in the systems notification tray.
 
Thanks in advance for any help
Megan Armstrong.
 

A:Windows 7 Restricted User - Remove Right click on taskbar icons; Remove show desktop icon

Hello Megan,

Hope you're doing fine.

Disabling context menu from application on the taskbar
Please note the task bar context menu for any application for windows 7 is sub-divided into two sections :

   a. Jumplist(to access recently opened files) 
   b. Creating a new instance of the application, Pin/Unpin, Close window

We can only disable the Jump List of the Taskbar context menu but not the "new instance creation, Pin/Unpin, close window"

Please follow the steps below to disable jump list:
1. Right-click on the Taskbar and then select Properties.
2. Click on the Start Menu tab and uncheck "Store and display recently opened items in the Start menu and the taskbar".
3. Click OK.

Disabling Show Desktop from the system tray
Regarding the requirement of disabling the "Show Desktop" button alltogether from the System tray, this is by design.

There are no ways to remove it. All we can do is to disable aero peek at Taskbar properties by right clicking and uncheck the option "Use Aero Peek to preview the desktop".
There's a third party software which addresses this sopecific purpose but I'm not pretty sure if this works perfectly for Windows 7 SP1 as well. Please refer to the link below.

Anyone know why and how i can fix this?
 

A:Tray icons dissapear...

That sounds normal, give it some time to load the icons. Unless you mean it takes an hour for them to appear? Also check your startup and only have those neccessary programs auto start when the computer starts.

A:TaskBar & DeskTop Icons coming & going

Hello, jv320i
Welcome to TSF

My name is Billy O'Neal and I will be helping you. (Billy or Bill is fine, if you like.)
Please give me some time to look over your computer's log(s).
Please take note of the following:In the meantime, please refrain from making any changes to your computer.
Also, even if things appear to be running better, there is no guarantee that everything is finished. Please continue to check this forum post in order to ensure we get your system completely clean. We do not want to clean you part-way up, only to have the system re-infect itself. :)
If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask before continuing. I would much rather clarify instructions or explain them differently than have something important broken.
Finally, please reply using the button in the lower left hand corner of your screen.
Old topics are closed after 3 days with no reply, and working topics are closed after 5 days. If for any reason you cannot complete instructions within that time, that's fine, just put a post here so that I know you're still here. We get a lot of people who simply leave, and if there is no contact for that amount of time I will have to assume you have "vanished" .

Please download OTScanIt2.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named OTScanIt2 on your desktop.

Note: You must be logged on to the system with an account that has Administrator privileges to run this program.Close ALL OTHER PROGRAMS.
Open the OTScanIt2 folder and double-click on OTScanIt2.exe to start the program (if you are running on Vista then right-click the program and choose Run as Administrator).
Click the Scan All Users checkbox on the toolbar.
Under Rootkit Search click Yes
Do not change any other settings.
Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked. If it is then click on it to uncheck it.
Close Notepad (saving the change if necessry).
Use the Add Reply button and Attach the scan back here (do not copy/paste it as it will be too big to fit into the post). It will be located in the OTScanIt2 folder and named OTScanIt.txt.

In your next reply, please include the following:OTScanIt.txt (Attached)

Hi there since last night my taskbar and desktop icons have completely disappeared Here is a list of problems I am encountering Disappeared taskbar and desktop icons Unable to right-click on the desktop The desktop background is still there though Taskbar Help! Have Desktop Icons and Disappeared! I have been running low on memory recently I received a message Taskbar and Desktop Icons Have Disappeared! Help! a few days ago advising me about that Since this problem has occured I have deleted one folder from My Documents which was about GB in space This is because I read on another website that this problem could be caused by lack of space and that the computer doesn t have enough memory to even start properly it requires mb to start Hence I deleted that big folder However nothing has changed I can only open programs by using the Windows Task Manager I have not downloaded any new software in the last couple of days so I don t think its anything to do with a virus or a bug I tried typing quot explorer exe quot into Task Manager but nothing happened If you guys need any more info do ask Anyone has any idea how to solve this

Hi Killstat!!

Can you verify whether your explorer.exe is running at startup?



If it is not running, try type in "explorer.exe" and run the application. See whether you get back the taskbar.



If the explorer is already running, you can download this registry and merge it by double clicking on it:Restore taskbar




Post back about the results here ok. I will try to guide further if it still not resolve your issue

Recently, every so often, let's say that I am on the internet, my takbar will start blinking. I can still do things on the net. But, if I log off or minimize the WINDOW, I find that my icons are blinking too. My OS is WINDOWS XP. Is this happening to anyone else? Any solutions? Thanks!

The icons on my mother's pc are missing, the taskbar is gone as well, she keeps getting redirected to irrelevant sites when clicking on a link in ie. Also, the only way to run any program internet explorer,chat, email, is by getting to the run menu via ctrl+alt+del+ task manager. I have tried system restore. it worked once but has since gone back to the "missing icons taskbar" status.I have gone so far as to download hijackthis. but when i finally get it open to run the scan it disaapears so fast aftr scanning, i can't find the "logfile" to post on here. Please help . you guys rock!
