The desktoptab can be disabled by your Systems Administrator. For example in a corporate environment or a school.
There's a thing you can try though:
1. Go to Start -> Run and type: gpedit.msc and hit the Enter/Return key on your keyboard.
2. Go to User Configuration in the tree on the left. Select Administrative Templates.
3. In Administrative Templates select Windows Components.
4. In Windows Components select Windows Explorer.
5. A list of properties appears to your right. Go to "Turn on classic shell". Doubleclick on it.
6. A dialog appears with a few options. Select "Not configured" and click Apply and then OK.
If done correctly try going to the Display properties tab again. The Desktop-tab should be visible now. This can take a minute or two however after you changed the setting. So if it isn't there the first time, try it again.
Note: if you cannot use gpedit, or Run then your System Administrator had blocked it. Then there is nothing to do.
Let me know if this helped you out, please rate.

All the posted solution are correct, however if all the solution posted is not for you then, maybe you should scan your system with a potent antivirus, you can do this attaching your HDD to some other computer and scan your HDD there, however if hard for you to do the task, then try boot your system at safemode, by pressing "F8" when computer start and you prompted to boot option.
May this help, leave comment fefore you rate, thanks!

In XP right-click on desktop, select 'Properties', Click the
'Settings' tab (last tab on top), and click 'OK' button.
In Win 7, Right-click on screen and select 'Screen Resolution'.
Click 'OK' button.
(Ignore any warnings)
Restart the computer.
Set the screen resolution again to a reasonable setting.
- Be careful! If you set it too high (if the monitor does not support the resolution you select), again the screen might disappear! (Sometimes this happen automatically after installing a game)
