1. Are you using a custom theme?
2. Right click on the Start and pick properties/customize/set to default.
3. You must run sfc /scannow until it fixes the problems if it can. It may take 3 or 4 times with reboot after each time. Windows 7 will not work properly until System File Checker comes up clean,(no problems).
