First let's try this:
How to Start Your Computer with the Last Known Good Configuration
To start your computer by using the last known good configuration:
1) Start your computer.
2) When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key (or just keep tapping the F8 key).
3) When the Windows Advanced Options menu is displayed, use the arrow keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.
The Last Known Good Configuration feature provides a way to recover from configuration problems such as newly installed drivers that may be incorrect for your computer's hardware. It does not correct problems that are caused by missing or corrupted drivers or files.
The Last Known Good Configuration feature uses information that is saved from the last time you shut down your computer to restore registry settings and drivers. Because of this, you can use this feature only if you were able to start your computer successfully prior to restoring your system by using the last known good configuration.
After you start your computer by using the last known good configuration, changes that were made since the last successful startup are lost.

If so, Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore choose a date before the problems began.
If not, I recommend you repair your Windows installation:
I just posted a new guide here.

I was reading up on somethings today and I found this on that "it's time" and "project 1" its something to do with losing your icons and task bar this is all I was able to save from the page before the phone guys messed up my phone line Wish they would finish the work soon
Something called "Dynamic Desktop Media" has been known to cause the desktop items to disappear. Use Task Manager to end the sysu.exe process.
Look in Add/Remove Programs and in Windows\Downloaded Programs for "Dynamic Desktop Media" and uninstall it. If a "ddm" folder remains behind (could be in C:\Program Files or C:\Programs\), delete it.
here is the norton thing on it click here I think this is your problem maybe Admin can look at it more and see if I'm on the right track. hard right now for me to with them doing more work on the phone line upgrade.

After reinstalling, running Windows Update, and a Spybot S&D scan, it would be a good idea to run a HiJack This scan, just to be sure there's no spyware left that will continue causing problems.
