Might boot to vista dvd and try repair tools.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Within Task Manager, locate explorer.exe (which is the desktop shell) and end that process. On the Applications tab, click New Task and start up explorer.exe Your Start Menu and Desktop icons should all appear again. Let us know if it fails or if you routinely resort to manually starting the Explorer process.
