I just got a problem with vista x64. I have no idea what to do apart from re-install. On every load my desktop and start menu crashes, no errors or anything come up but i'm unable to click on anything on the desktop or start menu, i can;t even open the start menu or sys tray. This only happens about 2 mins after windows is booted so i can open some programs and after alt-tab to what i need. But this is a real annoying problem, i've tried disabling all startup programs but it didn't help. any ideas guys? i really can't be arsed re-installing vista again. I tried uninstalling Avira and installed Avast in it's place but still have the same problem. only other items i have running are CCC and Memset and the logitech keyboard program. I can't even open the task manager - ctrl,alt/del works but it won;t open the program. When i shut down the desktop magically comes back to life about a second before it closes windows.
