When I boot up and login, XP takes a an extra minute to load than usual, then the taskbar flashes and disappears. There's no desktop. I can start just about any program through Task Manager ("New Task") except explorer and IE. When I do, the show up on the processes list, but quickly shut down.

If SFC did not work, then if you have a XP CD, do a repair using the cd.
