After loading windows, if you are unable to see the desktop icons and taskbar, This may help:

Click the Windows Start, type regedit, press Enter and navigate to
registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon. In the right pane, make sure there is a REG_SZ named Shell and it has a value of “explorer.exe” (no quotation marks).
If ita not there, create it by clicking Edit > New > String Value , then name it ‘Shell’ then right-click on it modify it, and name it explorer.exe then restart the computer.
