    Well, you found iexplorer.exe as a running service / application but what you need to do is, WHILE in Crl,Alt,Del - Task Manager, Click New which will show you a Run... dialog and type in Explorer.exe in that box, hit enter. This will start the GUI commonly referred to as Windows. :)
    Also, if it gives you grief in the future, many times you can get into task manager and end the Explorer.exe service and restarted it via this same method. Could save you a reboot / time.
