What version of windows do you have?
Open the task manager and go to file>run and type explorer.exe into the box and hit enter. What happens?

Press Ctrl + Alt + Del Go to File > New Task (Run...) and type explorer.exe in the space provided. Press enter. Do your icons and start menu return?
And when you boot into Safe Mode, can you see your icons and start menu? (tap F8 while computer is turning on in order to get into Safe Mode)

When I typed in "explorer.exe" as suggested, nothing happened, the start button and the shortcuts are still not visible.
As for the safe mode suggestion, the same still presist.

1. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del Go to File > New Task (Run...) and typechkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.
Windows will appear to load normally, then the monitor will show progress of the scan, rather than going to Windows. Do not disturb this. This will take an hour or so before it gets to the desktop.
2. Repair Windows XP. You will need an XP CD in order to do this. If you're not sure how to do a repair, check out the following link: http://www.geekstogo...ws-XP-t138.html

Alternate XP Repair Method
Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system. After running XP Repair you will need to install all Windows Updates and possibly your video card driver.
