You didn't perchance "customise" Explorer in any way, did you? Patch UxTheme or something along those lines?

If you're quite sure Explorer is not customised or patched...

Have you installed any "desktop extenders"? Ultramon, that sort of thing.

Are the BIOS and video driver up-to-date?

Does the same thing happen if you use MSCONFIG to select "diagnostic" mode and reboot?

Nope. I'd never installed any desktop extender.

I'd already rebooted using you recommend.
After i pressed sleep button in "diagnostic mode", my computer didn't go to sleep mode and just crashed. So i cannot wake it up normally and have to hard reset.
Furthermore, i confused that i tried again by sleeping it in "normal mode" and it went normally, then woke it up, the taskbar was fine.

+ this problem occured after i installed Xiph codec to read .ogg and .flac files but i've alreadys uninstalled it.

+ i'm not sure about bios driver but display driver is up-to-date

Again, thank you very much for your help.

Screensaver

What has happened is you probably moved your mouse in between your screen saver and desktop.
Try previewing your screensaver usually fixes it for me.

I have the same problem when I come out of a program called KeyWack (It's for my 2 y.o. grandson to play with).

I usually have to log out and log back in to get my taskbar back. Not TOO much trouble when it keeps the 2 y.o. occupied for more than 2 minutes.
