Taskbar/desktop problem, unkown origin

My problem is that yesterday evening i turned my computer off as normal, then went to bed, today however after returning from work i noticed a serious change in my desktop/taskbar.

basically it is now a World of Warcraft Taskbar which i have not approved or installed and i have not played WoW in 4 years or so.

i have done 4 virus scans and 1 bootscan and i have no idea the reason for this change weather it is a virus or god knows what.

Also sorry for any bad grammar as English is not my main language

as you can see below this is my problem, the computer runs like it always does.
The only problem is the desktop/taskbar.

please help.
