Please click on Start>Run, then type services.msc into the box and hit enter. Look through the list of services and verify that the 'Themes' service is started and set to automatic. If it wasn't on, then reboot and see if it's fixed. If it was already on, proceed to the next step.
Next, ONLY if you have XP Professional, do the following: (If you have home edition, the instructions are different, see below)
Start>Run, type gpedit.msc and press enter
double click user configuration>administrative templates
Click start menu and task bar
Double-click Force classic Start Menu and set it to Not Configured
Reboot and see if it's fixed
Now, if you have XP Home, you need to edit the registry. Be very careful following these instructions, or bad things could happen:
Start>Run, type regedit and press enter
HKEY CURRENT USER
You'll have to navigate through the tree to get there. If you require further clarification, post back to me before attempting to proceed further.
In the right-pane, set NoSimpleStartMenu to 0 [dword:00000000]
If you don't have a 'NoSimpleStartMenu' key, don't do anything, post back and say so.
Reboot and retry. Fixed?
