Startup Error in Vista: "explorer.exe"



Don't let the title freak you out. I could hardly send this without Explorer

- I restart my computer.
- I see that a lone Explorer window pops up, but no trace of the taskbar or
the desktop.
- I close the window, after waiting to see if it does something.
- "Three Brothers Combination" (CTRL+ALT+DEL).
- Run "explorer.exe".
- The taskbar, desktop, Sidebar and other goodies pop up out of nowhere.

Any fix? I thought of putting "explorer.exe" in Scheduled Tasks as process
(if there is such an option), but I didn't study the "side effects" of this.

Does anyone else have this problem?
Does anybody know a fix?

Do you have the same problem when you boot into safe mode? Is UAC disabled
on the system?
