How come I cannot access my start button or desktop icons?

by on September 14, 2009

Q: I have a Windows XP emachine. For a couple of days now I have been getting around on my computer through Task Manager because one day my computer just went blank in response after a disk clean up. I can not seem to get to start or any desktop icons normally. I tried to restore my computer back to the last known operating day but that doesn’t work. So how can I, using only Task manager now, find my start button so I can access my control panel to reset everything or is there something else wrong?
