I have just cleaned my computer of a virus problem I was having but now for some reason the word "Start" is missing from the start menu button and all of the user accounts are missing. What can I do to fix this problem?

The button is still there but the actual word "start" is missing from the button. The windows icon is missing now too but the actual button is still there but it is blank
