Is there any way to fix it so I don't have to reinstall anything? As of right now my plan is to do a reinstall tommorow afternoon or sunday morning.

The "go to start->run->sfc /scannow" wont work b/c i dont have a start menu at all.

*EDIT* I finally decided to just endure the task of wiping the drive and reinstalling everything... I have about half of it back on now, but at least I have a start menu again.
