as a workaround, have you tried running explorer.exe from the task manager?

basesax, Go to the link below and scroll down to Line 195 (right column) and click on "Restore Desktop Icons and Taskbar" to download a vbs file fix. Save it to your hard drive (you may want to right click and use Save Target As). Double click the vbs file. You will be prompted when the script is done.
"NOTE: If your anti-virus software warns you of a "malicious" script, this is normal if you have "Script Safe" or similar technology enabled. These scripts are not malicious, but they do make changes to the System Registry."
It may correct your problem which is usually caused by a virus/malware.
