Start menu not updating vista

By the way, it is an older computer but has been upgraded with Windows XP (I believe). Hello, I spent 5 day to solve this problem Ctr Alt Delete // File - New Task (run...) // // OK This will show your desktop icons but not solve the problem To solve it just do this steps 1- copy "explorer.exe" from other clean computer (from C:\WINDOWS) 2- in your computer go to C:\WINDOWS 3- show hidden files from (Tools - Folder Options - View - Show hidden files and folders) 4- delete and any other files start with explorer...

5- put the new file (explorer.exe) 6- log off or restart 7- log on Congratulation your desktop healthy now I have seen this happen to various logins in Windows XP, on a number of computers.

Ctrl-Alt-Del does not give you a shut down option, and the Start Shut Down option is also missing. The key for me was closing the running applications before starting It didn't work on mine but my one of my buds gave me a solution that worked and was very easy.. I have had this same problem with multiple machines running windows XP.
