When you get to the desktop, press ctrl+alt+delete. That should bring up the task manager. Then go to file-->new task-->type explorer.exe and press enter. This should bring back your desktop icons and taskbar.

I tried that but I got an error message "windows cannot find 'explorer.exe' Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the start button, and then click search"
