How long has this been hapenning? Have you made any recent changes to your PC? Any recently installed games, software, etc.? Have you tried rebooting in safe mode yet? I would try this first and then reboot again. If it still doesn't come up then 1st try bringing it up in Safe Mode, disable Active Desktop and then reboot in regular mode.
