Windows 7: No desktop after login

Windows 7 7100 build
 
 
No desktop after login

Hello All

Here is the story:
I had dual booted xp (E: drive when on 7) and windows 7 (C: Drive), so i had partioned my HDD.
I decided to get rid of xp, so got all necessary docs off that partition, and then using G-parted deleted that partition and extended the other (xp was on the left side and 7 on the right, this is from the Gparted window). It also said the the C: drive was the boot drive.
So i didnt think there would be any problem.
But when it had finished, and my computer rebooted i couldnt find my OS, and after hours of googling and using the 'startup repair' i still couldnt change it, but i found a Grub thing, cant remember exactly, but i managed to make my partition show up in the 'select a OS' window in System Repair, so it repaired it.

But now when i boot into 7, login screen comes up, i type my password, and it logs in, but all i got is a pale blue background, with the Windows 7 build 7100 ( RC ) and the cursor.
I really dont know where to go from here!

Help Would be greatly apreciated,
Thank You
