    Looks like the explorer process isn't starting up. Something is very wrong :)

    Try pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del, New Task, "explorer"

    What happens if you start in safe mode, do you still have the same problem?

    Ok, I`d like to check that you don`t have any infections on your system.

    Go and read this thread HERE, then post a HJT log as an attachment.

    Regards Howard :)
