    Start, Taskbar, File Explorer not launched when log in

    Blackscreen after login, no start, no taskbar, no desktop, but I can run applications using task manager.
    I tried running explorer.exe, but nothing happened. Neither can i run control pannel (::{26EE0668-A00A-44D7-9371-BEB064C98683} No such interface supported).
    I also tried using the command line sfc /scannow in safe mode but it still cannot solve the problem.
    It seems that some services or process died.
    Please help.

    What about doing a System Restore to before this happened? You can do this from Safe Mode.

    Did you do anthing significant just before this happened (graphics driver update, applied windows updates, installed a new program, contracted a nasty malware). If any of these apply, please provide additional details; otherwise, I recommend you try Ztrucker's suggestion first; however, if all else fails, you could try this:
