XP-Problems

I'm having with XP. I removed Novell from the laptop. I rebooted the
laptop and I was able to get to the login prompt to type in the username &
password. After that my laptop just sits there. About 5 seconds later I
see a box that flashes really quick and I hear the XP login sound. But
nothing comes up. I can go to the Taks Manager and see all of the programs
but I can't click on them I don't receive an error and I don't see the start
menu. I've tried to repair the MSgina.dll with the script provided by
www.dougknox.com but the script is in use and I can't properly run the tool.
I've tried to run in safe mode but the screen is dark and nothing comes up.
I'm at a lost here what should I do next?

AJ,

Try to start a new Explorer.exe process using Task Manager's File menu.

>> I can't properly run the tool.

What happens when you run the tool?
