No explorer.exe or task manager :(

I would be very surprised indeed if Bitdefender was responsible for 'deleting' either the Task manager or explorer.exe, why do you blame Bitdefender? I've used it myself without any files mysteriously being deleted.
I suspect you may have a malware infection which has done it. You should therefore download and run 'HijackThis' from here:
It will create a logfile of everything running on your PC at that time. Post that logfile here and not anywhere else:

Getting out of trouble by creating a new task Not sure if this works with Vista
Now just "occasionally" you may end a process, or terminate a program, and then you lose everything! By this I mean you just have a desktop but NO task bar at the bottom of the screen and NO icon's on the desktop.
If this happens then start up the Windows XP Task Manager and select the Applications tab.
Now select the New Task button at the bottom of the window. A new smaller window will appear. In it simply type:
explorer.exe is the Windows Program Manager (or Windows Explorer.) It manages the Windows Graphical Shell including the Start menu, taskbar, desktop, and File Manager. By restarting this process the graphical interface for Windows will reappear.
