Xp will not boot to windows

Specs: Windows XP, celeron 256mb
I have had to reinstall windows, as the old install started running very slow. I had checked for viruses, malware etc but found none. I thought it may have been a hardware problem but hdd and ram tests showed no problem. I have removed my graphics card and am now running via the on borad graphics. The problem is, even though the install went smoothly, now when it boots, i get as far as the message "windows is starting" and then it shows the usual xp desktop screen background but nothing else appears. No icons, taskbar, nothing. I can open task manager and enter explorer.exe at the command prompt but still it will not display the proper desktop screen. Any ideas???

Try this ---
This page has alot of XP fixes
Some require the download of a VBS file.
So, read at the top of that page--
"How to use the VBS files"

Then go to line 195, then click item in right hand column.

It might be a bad install.
I'd reinstall it again.
