XP Explorer search toolbar comes up blank?

  1. My computer is working fine and all scans come up null, but for some odd reason my search toolbar is empty. See here:


    Also, I tried restarting because one of my games kept terminating for no reason with no dialogs, and it took forever to shut down, forever to start up, and when I tried accessing my System Restore utility this is the window that came up


    Also, I actually had to execute it twice to even get that window. It would not execute otherwise, though rstrui.exe appeared in the process list.

    See if this will help access System Restore:
