What operating system? 95 98 ME?
Are you using any utilities like Tclock or Microangelo to change the start menu appearance? If so, turn them off and see if that helps.

You can also try extracting a fresh copy of explorer.exe to C:\windows and see if that helps.

No utilities, win98 se, the thing is it doesn't always look like that, sometimes it has other shapes and colors, but never start

could be corrupt video drivers, you can try and download and install new ones

I have seen the start and the the space around the icons by the clock change colors. Somethimes you can get it to go away if you hide the task bar and other times you need to reboot.
