Whenever I login, explorer.exe doesn't start, so my start menu or desktop items don't show up. I can run programs through Task Manager but the only program I can't run is Internet Explorer (iexplore.exe). When I try running explorer.exe through Task Manager the start menu just flashes and disappears again. Everything works fine in Safe Mode though. I tried System Restore and that didn't work. I have tried anti-virus and spyware checks but those didnt come up with anything. Thanks for your help.
