slow login & no start menu/task bar help

  computerdiv 17:18 30 Nov 2009

I think I have picked up a virus that Is causing very slow boot after reaching log-in. After about 5 mins win xp screen opens and all icons appear but no task bar.I can access the start menu by right clicking on a very small amount of task bar at the bottom of the screen. The screen resolution is not over size so that the start menu is out of sight below the bottom of the screen. I can still play games but can't run anti-virus system (eset) and I can't run acronis either. I thought I would back up mu games and reformat but can't cut/copy & paste either.

any suggestions

I forgot to add that system restore refuses to work so tried that to.

have you tried safe mode to see if you can run eset?
