HELP! Laptop won't work! Explorer.exe Error of the worst kind!

The thread title explains it in a nutshell, but HERE'S where I will tell the other info, The error only comes up when I try to login, it acts like I am not an admin anymore, despite the fact that I am the only user, Can't detect any system restore points, AND IT'S BEEN LIKE THIS FOR DAYS!!! Did I mention it won't show anything that is on the desktop or even the desktop itself, and the fact that THIS WAS MAKING ME GO CRAZY!?!?!?

Can you actually log in to Windows? If so, do this:

1. Click Start
2. In the search box, type cmd
3. In the list that appears, right-click on cmd.exe and choose Run as administrator
4. In the command window that opens, type sfc /scannow and hit enter.

Report the output from the command window once it finishes.

I'm sorry, but I said that it forgot that I am the System Admin, so thus, whenever I try to use sfc, I get the "You must be an Administrator to use that" Message!

Is it the Startup Repair that comes with Windows? If so, I think it's already runnin' (PC Decided to BSOD last night, hoping it fixes itself, should take about 2 days) Might still be a good idea to keep this thread runnin' just in case it doesn't fix the issue

For the BSOD:

1. Download the DM Log Collector application to your desktop by clicking the link below

DM Log Collector.exe

2. Run it by double-clicking the icon on your desktop, and follow the prompts.
3. Locate the .ZIP file that is created on your desktop, and upload it here in your next reply.
