Look at this thread before: Windows 7 will be getting patches in Windows Update later today there's link to knowledge base articles. One is for the Desktop Window Manager.

We could also quickly check your settings in the taskbar properties.

Could look at the services.msc if the Desktop Windows Manager Session Manager is set to start, automatic.

Here you can see all the services to their default settings: Restore Default Services in Windows 7
