Strange desktop problem

Sorry to sound ignorant, but I don't know much about computers. A few
days ago, I opened my laptop to find that my desktop was just a black
screen with the window which would normally come up when you click my
computer, displaying only certain things on my hard drive. after about
20 minutes of searching, I found a way to connect to the internet to
search for a solution which I have yet to find. Any help?

Hello Joe,

Did you activate Vista within the 30 day trial period?

It sounds like you may be in Reduced Functionality Mode. Check with
this tutorial below to see if this is what you are experiencing. If so,
then it will show you how to get out of this.

Hope this helps,
