    Your explorer.exe desktop user interface is not running, so just hit the keys; Ctrl<Alt<Delete which opens up the Task Manager so you can start explorer.exe, ( click File then New Task and enter; explorer.exe ) Then I suggest you to run the system file checker tool, ( type in the run box this; sfc /scannow , and have your XP CD ready to put in so it can replace any missing or corrupt system files.
