Scan your system for parasites and malware.

Adaware SE (free)
http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download

Spybot - search and destroy (free)
http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html

Trend Micro - Housecall (free)
http://housecall.trendmicro.com

Then edit the Registry.

Desktop Tab
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
you also may find the values here also
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
Value Name: NoDispBackgroundPage
Data type: REG_DWORD
Value Data: (0 = Tabs, 1 = No Tabs) or simply delete
"NoDispBackgroundPage"

If you have XP Pro, use the Group Policy to change the restrictions.

User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Control Panel > Display

Then set "Hide Desktop Tab" to Not Configured.
