well i know what your problem is, but i dont know the solution. your computer isn't running explorer.exe for some reason. explorer.exe runs the desktop, the start bar, and the windows explorer. if you have xp, there is an out of the way method to run programs. open up the task manager (ctrl-alt-delete) and select new process from the file menu. then find whatever you want to run and it can open it just like windows explorer. sure, its inconveniant, but its what ive been forced to do for upwards of 3 months now.:cool:

Reboot the system and begin tapping the f8 kei immediately and repeatedly. Then when the safe mode option screen appears select "last known good configuration"
