Thank you Kristain,I followed your directions and found several iExplore.exe PF and MUI files outside the internet explorer programs folder.I deleted them and hopefully this solves this issue.I will check back if it continues.

The explorer.exe file is a Windows GUI shell that is usually called Windows Explorer. Sometimes explorer.exe gets corrupted or infected. When that happens, desktop drops and you can’t see any icons, there is no taskbar all you get is your desktop background.
