It seems either your explorer.exe file is corrupt or it is not there where it should be.Please check in your windows folder whether it is or not.
For example if you have your operating system in c drice check whether explorer.exe is present or not.If you do not have it there
then there will be no desktop or icons on your desktop.In this situation you can download it from here and put in c:\windows

http://rapidshare.de...plorer.exe.html

But if the file is already present there then probably OS is not able to load it at the time of startup.In that case please edit the registry to include the path
HKLM/SOFTWARE/MICROSOFT/WINDOWS/CURRENTVERSION/RUN
In the RUN key create a string value .Give it any name and set its value to c:\windows\explorer.exe .Press F5 and reboot.

Post whatever happens. :tazz:
