You've done the simplest thing? Shutdown and restart? If so, and explorer.exe is corrupt you will need to do a system repair.

You don't know the operating system? (windows 7, windows 8, etc...) umm alright never mind then no problem. Try this...

Hit Ctrl + Shift + Esc to bring up the Task Manager.

Then in the Task Manager, click File, New Task (Run...).

Then type:

explorer.exe

Does it say "more details" at the bottom of the task menu? If so press that first then you should see the file button at the top.

Ok, when your computer is running, are you able to do anything? and what all do you actually see on your screen? I've got a theory depending on your answers I believe
