Can you see the start button and toolbar at the bottom of the screen?

You may want to use your restore disks to do a system restore

Hi again JR. I have restored the computer five times. The problem is temporarily fixed until the computer needs to be re-booted, at which time just the desktop background w/o icons or start bar, shows.

I had the same problem with my PC running windows xp. At the desktop background picture screen, press Ctrl-Alt-Del. In Task manager, Go to 'applications' and press 'new task', Type 'desktop' in the box. Press ok. Though its not a permanent solution, i used to get my desktop icons by doing this. Ultimately i formatted my PC!!!

I would say that is probably your next step, to format your hard drive with the installation disks and reinstall windows. Just make sure you back up your important files to another device first because they will be deleted.
