Reboot into safe Mode. Choose "Last known good configuration".
I was cleaning up my brothers labtop, ran spybot/virus scan then turned my attention to the hard drive. very routine, but when i ran error checking it had a lot to work with (took much longer than normal) and when it finished I booted back up to find the taskbar missing and IE no longer working. Ive tried restarting explorer.exe via task manager, did a sfc, and reversed the changes made by spybot. System restore gives me an error when I try to start it, saying it cannot help my system. I'm at my wits end, is there anything else I can do? Please help, I need to fix this ASAP!!!
Thank you, any help will be most appreciated.
