the start menu no files on the desktop appear, nuthn, it stays blank, but has the screen saver.

wen i open task manager, i can manually open internet, itunes, etc, but nuthn else

wen lookn at the processes running i notice that only programs such as 'csrss.exe' are running, which under user name is 'System'

nothn opens under the account name. i used to notice that this problem can happen wen the process named 'explorer.exe dsnt load or accidentally shut dwn. so i av tried manually running this process, but wen i try an error appears "windows cannot find 'explorer.exe'. make sure u typed it correctly...... etc".
