    Right-click the desktop, go to Arrange Icons, and make sure Show Desktop Icons is enabled. Other than that, I can't help you.

    I hope you only killed the process and didn't actually remove the explorer executable - that can only lead to bad things happening.

    You're on XP? You're most likely infected to fuck and back. Also, deleting Explorer is retarded. Why would you do that?

    That one place
    Jesus christ back up your important files and get the fuck off that now
    how much shit did you download O_O
    Actually..
    Are you running a illegal version of windows? I believe that if it hasnt been activated 30 days after first run it does that

    Ctrl-Shift-Esc

    New Task
    "C:\Windows\explorer.exe"

    Just prey that you weren't successful when you tried "deleting explorer.exe"

    Throw computer out window should fix it.

    If you have another hard drive or could at least get one, then just disconnect you current HDD install windows on the new HDD and then recover your files
