Can you tell what's missing and what's wrong?

1st scan for viruses & malware, then install Classic Shell

It's not obvious what that 1st JPG was, but in any event, use your antivirus to scan the system, then download & install MalwareBytes, update it, and do a scan for malware. After that you could download Classic Shell and make your desktop look like Windows 7.
Good luck.
