Strange. Sounds like something is hiding the actual Desktop. Are you able to access the Desktop folder itself? It's usually located in C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Desktop (assuming that C: is the root drive).

EDIT: For Vista, it's C:\Users\[user]\Desktop (assuming that C: is the root drive).

You have as pointed out by Amlak posted in the XP forum but your spec says Vista.
Go start run in XP type "msconfig" press enter
In Vista Start, search type "msconfig press enter
If in admin account agree to open. If not in Admin enter details as required and open msconfig.

Does it open and then immediately close.
Post back results of that please.

as well of course as replying to Amlak.
