From the first post.

I did an Automatic Windows Update, restarted, and my Desktop was black, all my shortcuts were gone, the windows and toolbar were from Windows 98, and I could not access any programs or files.
I have no idea what was meant by that but I do know the way it reads. I don't know whether it is the classic style or a 3 rd party program or what ever.
Maybe jazuchan396 could clue us in.
