I've seen this on here before. Your desktop is probably on another monitor. Wait for Baarod to come and help you with this one lol. I think he says to do something like hit windows key + left or right arrows.

Can you bring up the task manager with ctrl-alt-delete? Is explorer.exe running?

ctrl alt delete does nothing and as far as i know explorer is not running

but then id get an error message Saying it cannot Set up as its in Safe mode

Hello, Since being on this forum I've learned a lot. So one thing I did was create a non-administrative account to run from. I installed in the user account. I copied the setting from the administrator on the TBird setup. It recently updated to 3.14 and the admin account is fine. The user...
