    Default Start button doesnt work and icons no longer have labels

    Attempted to do a restore in safe mode. Computer came back up but all of my icons no longer have labels and when selected open a box that appears to only have the wire frame outline... no text whatsoever on anything. start button does not work, windows explorer opens folder window but there is no files showing. Windows symbol key works but with limited functionality...can run msconfig but all you see is plain screen with the radio buttons but nothing else.

    Computer is Dell M6300
    Windows 7 Ultimate x64

    Have run
    virus scan
    rebuilt mbr
    rebuilt bcd

    no seems to work

    Can you Undo the system restore?
    Select an older system restore point and go back to it.
    Run ChkDsk.

    These are the 3 things that come to my mind....

    I would also advise running the following if you are able.

    Eset's on-line scanner.
