    you somehow corrupted your explorer.exe or changed a registry setting for it to look for a different file when loading the shell.

    If you corrupted explorer.exe, best bet is to do a repair or system restore.
    To check if explorer.exe is set to your shell:
    Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up task manager. Click File>New Task.
    Type REGEDIT, click ok.
    Click the plus sign next to these entries:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    SOFTWARE
    MICROSOFT
    WINDOWS NT
    Click the folder WINLOGON
    in the box to your right, find the entry Shell. If the data correspondig to it is not Explorer.exe, double click Shell and modify it to Explorer.exe.
    Close the registry, Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up Task Manager.
    File>New Task. Type explorer, click ok.
