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.
