    Good chance for some here this is either due to another program on your PC or in the context menu (when right click something) it's shell extension on list put in by that third party application.

    Use CCleaner to disable all shell extension from these third party apps or use Autoruns to do this or disable startups .
    I did this and it fixed the problem. In my case it was Format Factory shell extension that caused W10 to throw a tantrum.

    I'm having exactly the same problem. It has happened on all 3 computers I've upgraded from 8.1 and 7 to 10. 2 of them eventually worked out OK with extreme care, but I still haven't been able to upgrade from 8.1 Pro on my main system or keep explorer.exe working past a certain point even with a clean install. Everything worked flawlessly with 8.1, so I can't see any logical reason why it wouldn't be the same with 10. It's not supposed to be a downgrade.
    I stumbled upon solving this problem with my PC. I received a message from AVG Virus program that c:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Performance\Monitor direct contained a .tmp file that was malicious. After deleting that file, I have had no more problems with my Desktop disappearing in windows 10. Hope this helps!
