Main Monitor All White Except for Task Bar

Logged into my Windows 7 PC using Cisco VPN and was greeted by an all white display (no background or icons) except for the task bar.  When I click on the display the task bar disappeared.  When I logged in at work this morning I got the same result.  I have dual monitors, so I tried setting the display to use only my main monitor....same result.  I reverted back to the original dual monitor display... same result.  Then the desktop appeared as it normally would.  Any idea what would cause this?
