Every time I boot up my computer, the screen stays black.
I have to manually start explorer.exe with taskmanager and then it works, but still I want to know how I can fix it, and how to prevent.

Any help is welcome.

Hello,
Could you please tell me when this started, and what was done before it started?
Did it start after an update?
Did you install updated drivers?
Did you add any hardware?
It could be a conflict with a video driver, media files, Etc...
Please tell me about any recent changes.

Yhis could be the problem.
Have you tried to uninstall it (if you paid for it you should still have a valid key) and see if the issue continues?
You may have to run system file checker to fix the corrupt files.
Do you have a Vista disc, or is it a recovery disc set?

Uninstalling doesn't work, but I forgot to mention that it opens with a windows explorer screen (I mean a map like [C:Users/Something])
I don't know what kind of disc it is.

Ok, I've found the DVD. It's a Recovery DVD.

Ok, I've fixed it myself now:

1. type in search in the start menu: regedit
2. look left for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
3. look left for SOFTWARE
4. look left for Microsoft
5. look left for Windows NT
6. look left for Currentversion
7. look left for Winlogon
8. look right for shell
9. replace it with explorer.exe

(I've found this solution at Vista x64 )
