do you have any themes running? try disabling them and accessing it again

else put an XP disk in the machine and go start>run  in the box type sfc /scannow

this checks and restores windows system files

Could be caused by theme.
Look this article of MS KB: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/823768
It should fix your issue too.

Also, you can find such dll (Shellstyle.dll) and simply replace it with working one.
