If you hit CTRL-ALT-DELETE, and click "New Task", and type "explorer", does that get your start bar, etc. back up?

Hmmm, that sounds like something is messed up...have you tried booting in Safe Mode and from Last Known Good Configuration? I'm assuming that you used to have start bar, etc? What processes does Task Manager show running?

try this:
run regedit
navigate to these subkeys:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
And
Delete all restrictions under these ex. NoDesk:DWORD:000000001
