Hit ctrl+alt+delete and open the task manager. In Applications click New task and type
explorer
and click ok.

There is a 50% chance that you will regain your icons and taskbar.

tonny brandt is exactly right.  The problme is probably caused by closing either explorer or iexplorer teasks forcefully.
