Windows Vista and the Problem of Corrupt Event Logs

When I would boot up the machine and login, I was met with no desktop. Merely a white mouse cursor with no desktop icons. The laptop was not thrashing about, and my data was intact.

My first instinct was to boot into Safe Mode. Booting into Safe Mode is normally a good way to get around this, but as I booted into Safe Mode and logged in his user account, the same black desktop greeted me. I attempted booting into Safe Mode with Command Prompt, but I was met with the same result. I booted again and tried the old Windows NT trick of booting with the Last Known Good Configuration. Again, I was greeted with the black desktop and white mouse cursor. In all of these instances, I was unable to start Task Manager as well. For all intents and purposes, once I logged into the laptop, it was unresponsive.
