Windows 7: All Start-up Applications Crash Even in Safe Mode

All Start-up Applications Crash Even in Safe Mode

I have a Windows 7 x64 Gateway and recently my laptop froze completely, for 20 minutes, until I finally powered it down. Upon restarting, I found that all of my on-start applications had crashed and I was unable to access any files, desktop icons, or even the windows key/Start. The problem persisted as I relaunched in Safe Mode, with Windows Explorer sending constant crash reports and an unresponsive windows toolbar, without which I could not attempt a 'System Restore'. Any help is appreciated as I am running out of patience and know little about troubleshooting such issues.
