My desktop shows in the left part of the screen as if it were a common
folder, but it´s just the desktop! folder tasks, etc. And the quick launch
bar icons are all messed up... What has happened? I think some spyware
removal tool (not very reliable) has messed with the register...... How do I
get to get it right? Is my Pc suffering some kind of evil spell?

In the Registry at
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{00021400-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}\shellex\ExtShellFolderViews\{5984FFE0-28D4-11CF-AE66-08002B2E1262}\PersistMoniker
make sure that the value data reads
file://%userappdata%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop.htt
