can you use the snipping tool (built in to win 7) by typing snipping in search. use that to tak a screenshot of your desktop and upload it to us.

Let me know if you need any help with any of this

Hello Mitchell, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Umm, something went awry. You might consider doing a repair install to see if it can fix it without losing anything.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
