make sure that you're icons are not hidden.
Right click on desktop and select View->Show Desktop icons.

If you get the cursor try this.

Right click/screen resolution.

Check to see that your monitor is being picked up properly. Happens to me with a fresh install. Don't know why.

Press the 'flag' key (next to CTRL) and then tap the R key... You can run it from there...

Although the symptoms aren't exactly the same, I keep thinking malware...

Using 'Flag' and the E key, if explorer opens, you can see if the stuff in your profile has been hidden... Some malware does that... I haven't seen malware disable the task bar, but they change things all the time
