Going crazy and cannot afford a new computer
If you were going through ur files and quickly deleting them, you mayw check ur wastebasket for your desktop (if this is the problem all that should be left is your wastebasket. If you have already emptied the basket, you can find programs online that pull up files that have been deleted as long as you havnt overwritten the space that the files were stored at.

Verify that explorer.exe is a running task. If it's not, start it, and you should have your desktop back

Based on your post/description, you may want to try:
1.Restore to last good settings.This is done by pressing F8 before Windows Starts. You will be presented with a menu of several option. Press arrow down till you highlight Last Known Good Configuration that worked, select that and Enter. Hopefully, your desktop PC will revert to the settings that worked prior to when your problem started;
2. Should # 1 don't work out and you would really want to "...wipe everything out...:, pls back up all your important files. likewise, you need to log down all your devices from your Device Manager or save/copy/back-up your installer/driver files. Thereafter, you need to borrow an installer CD of your Operating System. Pop the Cd installer and boot from the CD drive. When the installer asks you, delete the partition and allow it to format to your NTFS, reinstall and follow on screen instructions.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
