Problem after Repair Install

  Yiannis 14:37 27 Sep 2008

I've just done a Repair install which seemed to go OK, but I've got a glitch:

When I click on Start, Run, I get a message saying "Windows cannot create a shortcut here. Do you want the shortcut to be placed on the desktop instead?" Likewise with "Help and Support" but not Control Panel. Clicking on Start - All Programs does nothing. Also the space above the Start button is completely black.

Since I cant access "Run", I cant run sfc /scannow. Looks like a repeat of Repair install unless hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

Will it boot in safe mode?

Yes, but same symptoms.
