windows not working properly
Installed Windows 7 on a new build-ssd. Windows loaded and worked properly, and was able to access anything I tried to.
Installed driver for graphics card. After restart, windows shows desktop background. No icons and unable to open start menu from windows key. I am able to right click and open SOME things that way, but others will NOT open. I was able to delete drivers in safe mode, then windows worked fine again.
Now, I've installed the mobo driver and the graphics card driver. I am having the same problem.
I have run a memory check and hard drive check. I have also made sure the icons are suppose to be displayed. I have installed all windows updates.
Any ideas on what to try next?

ocz vertex 2 120 gb
windows 7 professional 64 bit
**Also, just checked and our windows activation says Status: not available, Product ID: not available. And this is still in safe mode. (I am using a different computer)
***While NOT in safe mode, we went to try to activate it, it says 3 days until activation, and then clicked on activate now, but it does nothing (part of our limitations we are experiencing)
