I have Windows XP Build 2600 SP3 GDR 111025-1629

When I enter username and password - I get the "Loading Your Personal Settings" for about 10 seconds then it goes away and I get the background image but no icons or taskbar or no start button.

What can be wrong?  What can I try?  Is this fixable without re format.
