I found that if I follow these instructions from someone else's question, the icons and taskbar appear, but then disappear a few seconds later.
Then in the Task Manager, go to the File Menu -> New Task (Run) and type "explorer" into the box and click OK.
That should ask you now if you want to work in Safe Mode or run System Restore. Click Yes to stay in Safe Mode and you should now be able to see your taskbar and icons."
Please Help. Thanks
