Have you tried pressing F8 as you startup and selecting "last known good configuration"

Try Ctrl+Alt+Del and, if it brings up Task Manager, go to File - New Task and type in explorer.exe - it should create a fresh desktop with icons and start menu.

Do you want to format and start again -- is that what you mean?

Note: new breed of answerers on here now. Need for precision in questions otherwise they all go off at a tangent :o)
