Programs not opening.

Last night I ran an anti-virus scan and a spyware scan. Today the computer turns on but non of the programs will come up. You click on them and they just won't open up. The only thing that will open up is the file folders. Please help.

Re: Programs not opening.

Hello ,
Welcome to the User Discussion Forums.
If everything is missing and you have background only the taskbar and your icons may be on the other desktop. Disable the multiple desktop feature once you're in safemode to return the taskbar and icons to the correct screen.

If you still encounter the same issue in Safemode from within the admin account, windows may have a corrupted file. it is suggested to access the hidden partition to save your important documents using rescue data before recovering the C drive partition.
To access the rescue partition press [F10] a few times at the VAIO logo prior to launching windows and press enter when it states "edit boot options"
