Ok something different first, After my last post I found something else that might give us a work around till we find what has caused the problem.
Start up and get your start button back. go to run
when the run box comes up type in gpedit.msc
this should open group policy folder. then go to local computer policy>computer configuration>administrative templates>system>logon. On the right hand side it should have run these programs at logon. double click on this,check enabled, click on show, click on add, type in the box explorer.exe.
click Ok reboot the computer and see what happens.
As I said this might be a work around. If this works I would still like to find out what is wrong with your computer as you may have a worm
Cheers

Please read THIS first before posting.

Post a log as a new topic in the Malware Removal Forum. It will get a better response there from the people most qualified to analyze logs.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

If you log on in safe mode is the start button there ?
also try going to control panel > add remove programs
are ther any microsoft hotfixes there if yes remove them.

I eventually managed to resolve the problem by opening the Add/Remove
Programs wizard and deleting all the Windows Hotfix files. On rebooting
everything returned to normal
