Desktop bug - unable to see/create shortcuts

#1
Hey guys, I have a Windows 7 home premium 32 bit. I was swapping parts (mem,gpu,cpu) around to troubleshoot for another problem I've been having, when all of a sudden, I log on and all my desktop shortcuts are gone. I can't create any more, and I can't left click (and drag those dotted boxes around) on my desktop. I can, however, right click and click on the little menu that comes up next to your mouse; However, I cannot alter my desktop (aside from setting different backgrounds). What can I do?

E8400~3.0ghz
BFG GTX260
4gb (1x4) ~1333hz RAM
Antec 1000watt PSU
eVGA 790i Ultra mobo
