try system restore if its turned on

or if you want to try this

run new task in task manager---regedit

navigate to

hkey local machine



windows nt

current version


select winlogon and in right side panel double click shell

make sure bottom value says explorer.exe

even if it does delete the words explorer.exe and retype them then press ok

may have to restart pc afterwards
