You could manually end the explorer.exe process using ctl-alt-del then run new task explorer.exe every time you startup, but this is a pain.

Try running Regedit
Start->Run
regedit

navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon

Double click on the "Shell" Key
And make sure the data reads
explorer.exe

If the key does not exist, add it
its of type String.

Also, make sure to download all available critical updates from http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
