Yesterday my computer was infected with spyware protect 2009, I shut the computer down and when I turned it on the next day the desk top won't come up. I can see the desktop screen but there are no icons or menu bar nothing but the picture. After it sits for a few minutes the screen saver will start runing which is the pictures I have saved on the comuter. Do you know what I can do to fix this problem? Please help. I have XP Professional

I can't get on the internet to download the spyware removal. All that I have is the background screen for the desktop. There are no icons or start tab. How can I get my desk top back?
