While trying to get webroute spy checker to complete it's scan I tried closed down some of the running programms via task manager (running XP).
It allowed me to close some but one shut down my PC. Then on starting it up again I got the desk top back but with no short cut icons or the task bar working, all I had was the cursor changing to the egg timer whilst in the task bar.
I've tried running the settings restore in safe mode but it refuses to change anthing despite changing the restore from date.
The PC seems to work OK when it's restarted after the restore but tells me that restore was unsuccesful
Any ideas how to restore the settings?
Is it any good to re-install XP and can this be done without uninstalling it first?
