Using my wife's laptop earlier today I noticed there was no windows explorer icon under accessories, I then searched for it and nothing! It was then I also noticed the command prompt icon was also missing, again did a search and nothing! Everything seems to be working OK, we have 4 systems in the house and the other 3 all display explorer and the command prompt. Running Vista home on an HP laptop would appreciate any thoughts.

if you can get command prompt by starting in safe mode type sfc /scannow you may be asked for vista disk

you could also try a system restore

Thanks smackheadz I've managed to get to the command prompt via the pre installed HP recovery software, I've run sfc /scannow but its says everything is fine!
