I ran SFC /SCANNOW and it came back with no currpt files. However, I powered on over the weekend and let it boot went and did some other things then when i came back it had my desktop with a System restore dialog "You've just restored from restore point XXXX" Im guessing that when i did a restore point I didn't let it fully complete the system restore and it was hanging for a moment, and me being the impatient person i am didn't want to wait for it t complete so i was killing explorer.exe and restarting it. Everything seems to be good now after reboots and fresh power ons my desktop comes up now. So it pretty much fixed itself.
Thanks for your time.
