brihen, click on start-settings-taskbar and start menu. Make sure that always on top is ticked and click on apply.

brihen, have you tried a system file check.?
If not go to start-programs-accessories-system tools-system information-tools. Before you click on the checker make sure that you have your win 98cd in your cd drive.

Have you got a Windows key on your keyboard? If so, pressing it should bring up the Start menu.

CTRL+ESC should open the Start menu.
