missing XP taskbar/desktop icons

Specs: XP Home, .5gig
my brothers XP Home PC is all of a sudden missing it's desktop icons and taskbar - the blank desktop appears but nothing else.

The machine doesn't hang - you can still CTRL-ALT-DEL and get the task manager up and launch programs.

I've launched explorer which, when I've seen this happen before, seems to 'flush' the system and get it going again - although not on this pc.

It's as if it is getting confused in the last part of the startup process - maybe something to do with his user profile - perhaps it has got corrupt or something?

any ideas?
