I guess, the explorer.exe, which is responsable for displaying the desktop, is not started correctly on windows startup.

Press CTRL+ESC, to start the Task Manager.
Check the list of processes for the process Explorer.exe.
If it is not there, click File / New Task and type in explorer.exe, then click ok.

Report back the result.
