well I was defragging and i stopped cause it was takin to long and then my recyclebin and few other icons were messed up so started to work on it and I lost all Icons and my start menu doesnt work any help is appreciated.
Computer: Windows 7 Professional 32-Bit
Have you tried to restart the computer? I know it's an obvious thing to do but I have to ask :p
Did all the icons disappear when you started to "work on it"? If you use the file browser, is the files still there in the Desktop folder? When you say the start menu doesn't work. In what way is it not working? I know if the explorer process crashed the start menu could disappear. That was on Windows XP so I don't know if that can happen in Windows 7.
I click the start orb and it doesn't do anything it's just stays the same....and I am just gonna do a fresh install cause it's time to do one. Been almost 2 years.... Also I have restarted numerous times, safe mode, last good config, normally, repair...
Just out of curiosity. How did you stop the defragmentation? Did you press Cancel or did you turn off the power?
how bout going to safemode or doing system restore?
