What OS version is this? 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 ...


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.
