Windows 7: Win7 x64: no text on desktop, can't access start menu

Win7 x64: no text on desktop, can't access start menu

Hi, my Windows 7 machine is acting strangely, here are my symptoms:

personalization missing from login box
desktop icons have no text beneath them, some apps won't start
text in menus has disappeared
dialog boxes have no text
can't access start menu, therefore unable to run cmd as admin

screenshot similar to mine except my start menu doesn't come up

I've run sfc /scannow, it says no problems found.

I do have Vista on a separate partition that I can boot from. Is there something I can do from Vista to repair Windows 7? Have my personalization settings become corrupt? Thanks very much.
