Does anything work?

by Maevinn In reply to Locked Desktop and Taskba ...

Has anyone else had access to your machine? If so, try Ctl+Alt+Del and see if that comes up--someone might have set a screen saver to an image of the desktop. If that's not the case, check what processes are running--might be malicious code running through. If all else fails, force a restart.

the ctrl+Alt+Del comes up alright. can't really see any unsual process running. even when i restart the computer, the problem still persist.

Do the desktop shortcuts work? What about hitting the Windows button on the keyboard?

mavyn, nothing works but i think i've found out what the problem is.
the antivirus i am using after deleating the infected files cuases that problem. sometime when u restore the system to earlier dates, it comes back to normal sometimes i will have to run the back up over the whole thing before it works
