Blank screen on start up

When I turned my XP machine on this morning my desk top was black instead of a picture but all the icons are still there and every thing sems to be working OK. How do I get it back to normal please?

Thanks Skidzy but when I restart, the problem returns and I have to manually get the desktop picture back. Is there a way of keeping it there all the time?

There is a possible chance of malware involved;

Run Mbam and SAS

Download and update,then boot into safemode and run.
