Taskbar and Icons missing:

Try this:
(Original Message, and Response Number 1 looks like a fix?)

Also try this:
(That one is a special Posting someone made of how he fixed it.)

Another fix is un-quarintene explorer in Spydoctor.
This page has alot of XP fixes
Some require the download of a VBS file.
So, read at the top of that page--
"How to use a VBS file"
Go to line 195 in right column.

...the sysu.exe which is you said....

I said nothing. I was just giving links that may be the cause of the problem. It is your decision as to what the cause is.

In Task Manager, find and click New Task, then type
Then see if things come back. If explorer is not running, then you get that problem.

Most Virus and Spyware scans are likely to work better in Windows Safe-Mode.

Most of the time all you need to do is restart explorer.exe in the task manager and everything will show up. Like I said most of the time.
