When I boot my computer which is running WindowsME, I get
no icons or taskbar on the desktop. I get the Compaq wallpaper
and that is it. I have tried to boot in the "safe mode" but came
up with the same problem. Any suggestions will be appreciated..Thanks.

It appears your explorer.exe shell is damaged. Here is a pretty good detailed process you can follow that should get you up and running.
If you can not enter safe mode then you will have to use the command prompt.

See PCR's post here.
