That looks like you have it in Classic mode instead of Aero. Your Start button says "Start". Mine is round and does not say Start. == Right click on the desktop and then click "Personalize". Go into Themes and pick one that says "Aero". Let us know if that helps.

Have you recently update a driver? It does that when the graphics doesn't load and is replaced by a generic VGA instead. So Aero doesn't have all it fonctions.
