Cannot open "My Computer" icon

When I click on the My Computer icon, the desktop goes completely blank and then comes back up with the icons but Explorer will not open.  If I right click on My Computer and select Explore, the same thing happens.  Also, when trying to click on the Desktop tab in Display Properties, nothing happens.  I have run mbam which shows no issues.

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Ended up doing a System Restore to last week and that fixed the problem.  I'd still like to know what caused the problem to begin with.

It doesnt sound like any issues listed on those pages but moreso a matter of explorer.exe crashing.

Trying running sfc /scannow  
which is the system file checker. This will check for any corrupt or missing system files. You may need your os install disk.

@OriNetworks - I'll try that but I'm wondering if this may have to do with an Active Directory issue.  When I go into Group Policy settings, in the User Configuration/Administrative Templates, several of the options are missing.  I can add them, but it's odd that they are missing.
