I am haveing this same problem. When the desktop is suppose to load it is just a blank blue screen with a mousepointer. I tried creating the new task explorer.exe, however this did not bring up the start menu or any of the desktop Icons. I have also tried restarting in safemode and restoring windows to an earlier backup version, but this did not resolve the issue either. Any ideas on what the cause could be?
