Q: Everything but my wallpaper has disappeared from my desktop. No buttons on my keyboard work and my mouse does nothing but move the cursor across the screen. How can I get everything working again?

    I assume this is what you get after you restart the computer? (if not please restart your computer)

    What version of Windows are you running?

    Also, did you make any changes to the system that might be related to the problem? Download or install any software or updates?

    im running windows xp. as far as any software downloads or updates ther has been none to my knowledge. i have done a hard shutdown several times and it starts up like normal every time. one thing i did notice is it is asking for the password for my user which it never did before.
