Make a spare copy of your init.m file ($UserBaseDirectory/Library/Mathematica/FrontEnd/init.m) and try to restart Mathematica in a clean restart mode (init.m gets erased when started in this mode). On Mac's you hold down the Shift-Option when starting and on Windows you hold down the Shift-Control while restarting. If you get it to start correctly would suspect a corrupted init.m file, so if that appears to be the case you might try and take a look at the saved init.m file you made beforehand and see if you can spot any problems. Good Luck ... -Bob ps - when reporting strange errors I think it is always a good idea to say in a post the OS version as well as the exact Mathematica version and any other important information.
