Win 7 Ult x64 Start doesnt work Icons dont work

Attempted a restore in Safe Mode. System came back up with all icons as normal. Issue start button doesn't work, icons open file but there is not text or data...there is what appears to be wire frames where the information should be. All files still on drive but cannot access.

Safe mode does no good because everything is blank and there is no text

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Thanks for the information. My issue is that is can see nothing when a windows opens up. The start button, windows explorer, and all other icon open into a blank frame. Sometimes there is a column of tiny icon symbols and up/down arrows but nothing else. The Windows flag does operate but even using the msconfig command just gives a box where you can see three radio buttons but nothing else. I have run sfc numerous times without success.
