    This would appear to be my last resort. To recap from my original thread, I turned my computer on this morning and all my desktop, task bar(clickable and working), 'This PC', Drive and File icons were all gone, only the descriptive text was remaining and clickable.

    I quote from my thread:
    There is other weirdness in that I can right click on the icons but 'properties', for instance, will not work and when I go in 'This PC' weird black bits appear in the menu on the left. Also, when I save to my E: drive, I can actually see my file icons displayed in the 'Save as' box but not when I actually navigate to the drive, only the description below where the icons should be.

    The last thing I did before turning the PC off last night was run Super AntiSpyware and Spyware Terminator and then play a bit of Battlefield 1.

    The only thing I've done to try and rectify this is do a restore to two days ago but it has had no effect.

    I've tried the 'How To' article, I've tried Winaero and I've tried the Option 1 and 2 at the start of this thread but to no avail.

    Any ideas?

    Hello Tom,

    You could try doing a repair install to fix it without losing anything.

    Yes, I have done that and it has been a complete success!

    Thanks to yourself and again to those who helped me out on my original thread for this problem.

    Much appreciated,
