Desktop. No Icons. No Task Bar. No Task Manager. HELP ME

So yesterday I was surfing the web and talking to some friends.
All of a sudden bunch of porn pops up and on my desktop 3 icons pop up.

"Cheap Pharmacy"
"VIP CASINO"
"Search Online"

I knew that i had been hit by a virus because i had the same problem last time with Vundo. I easliy fixed Vundo so i thought i could fix this. I first deleted those icons and all of a sudden my computer restarts. When im at the desktop the wallpaper is different and it says

"Windows Protection

Click Here to Save!"

It was obviously fake so ignored it and open my BitDefender. Also a bunch of error messages popped up like "dwwin.exe error" and "dumprep.exe error" and they wouldnt stop popping up. I had it scan and I found 34 Viruses! I had them deleted but 3 had "No Action Possible" I believe the name of the virus was close to Critical 32 or something. I decided to restart and the User selection screen was different. I typed my password and it showed my usual desktop backround. I was waiting for the icons and taskbar to show up but they never did.

I decided to open Task Manger and type exeplorer.exe but everytime i hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete the message "dwwin.exe error" and "dumprep.exe" showed up again.

Please help me! I need solutions! I have so much important files in there that I cant afford to lose!

Any ideas would be appreciated!

Dear ily924,
There could be several reasons for this behavior. Anyways, i think you should do a System Restore. It will fix the problem. BTW, you should never keep your important documents on desktop.

Apart from this, i'll suggest you to go through the following articles describing same problem with solutions:
No desktop icons, task manager, mouse or task bar on start up
No Start Menu, Taskbar or Desktop Icons.
No desktop, no start button, no task bar, but everything works
