Click Restore system from factory default.

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
YES THAT IT IS
Expert:  Nalosin replied 7 years ago.
If it's not started by pressing ALT+F10 then it means that your partition where system recovery is located is corrupted.

So there is 2 ways to start recovery:
1. if you can enter the windows from Start menu
2. to order recovery discs and recover from it.

Can you load windows?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

I CAN LOAD WINDOWS BUT THERE IS LIKE VIRUS PC THAT DOES NOT ALLOW ME TO CLICK .ICONS DOES NOT SHOW EITHER.

Expert:  Nalosin replied 7 years ago.
If ALT+F10 buttons don't work which is 100% correct buttons to press to activate System Recovery screen, then either you can solve the problem without recovery (if possible) or to order Recovery Discs

Can you at least start in Safe Mode?

YES
Expert:  Nalosin replied 7 years ago.
Ok. Try this.
When you entered Safe mode go to Start -> Run (or in the Start Search box) and type

MSCONFIG
and press enter

Then go to StartUp tab and click "Disable ALL"
Then go to Services tab, check box "Hide all microsoft services" and uncheck all that left in the list

Then click Ok and restart your computer to Normal mode and see if you can get to the desktop and icons
