    when I boot up, my desktop comes up with only the
    background picture, no icons no start menu or task bar.
    The only time these show is for 2 seconds before I shut
    down windows. Everything shows with safe mode, I can
    still access most things with Ctrl+alt+del. Please help
    it's driving me crazy.
