This is my Office computer where Iím using Vista Enterprise. Yesterday before leaving I ran the Windows update and installed the same. I put the Shutdown timer on the system for 1 hour (installation time was 40 minutes left) and went home. When I came to office today, restarted my computer, logged in with my Username and Password, until here everything was fine but after loggin in, instead of getting the desktop I got a completely black screen with the mouse cursor.
I waited for 10 minutes but there was no change. Let me tell you that the system was not freeze because I can move my mouse freely. Tried getting some help from web and on many websites I found people saying the windows explorer crashed and hence getting the issue. We should restart the explorer.exe from task manager and that will fix the same. Well I tried doing the same but when I click Ctrl+Alt+Del, it brings me up only with the following options:
- Lock This Computer
- Switch Users
- Change a password
Surprisingly just the Task Manager is missing, That what I needed. I restarted the computer several times but no help. Logged in Safe mode yet no help. Even loggin to Last known good configuration doesnít helps.
Any working fix for this ?
