Explorer won't start after login

Hi
My explorer won't start after login, and it shows me "Documents" folder
instead. I have to hit Alt+Ctrl+Del, run the task manager, "New Task" and run
"explorer.exe" every time and it works fine after that.

I'm using vista ultimate and did a clean install.

Hi,

Most likely a damaged or altered registry entry. Clicks start and type
'regedit' and hit <enter>. Expand the keys at left to reach:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Click on this key, then locate the shell string in the right pane. Double
click it, replace the contents with just:

explorer.exe

Click ok, then close the registry editor and reboot.
