So a couple of days ago my desktop and taskbar dissappeared and after looking around on the internet I found out it was explorer.exe. I've been using the task manager to start explorer.exe ever since and now the desktop and taskbar flash on and off. I can't really do much because the only restore point is right when the flashes occured and it is a borrowed laptop so I don't have the windows xp cd. I really need this laptop to do work and even typing out this paragraph is really difficult.
Please help.

That sounds like malware to me. Please post in the malware forum for help (the links are after "Have a malware problem?" in my signature) :)
