The desktop is blank with only the wall paper some time with panel. The mouse pointer moves but right click is not working. Even I can not shutdown the system. I have dual boot with windows XP. The version should be 7. Please help in resolving the problem preferably in detial as I am new to Fedora.
Have you tried hitting Alt-F2 and typing "nautilus"? Nautilus is the default file manager in GNOME, and it also controls the desktop icons/desktop context menu. It might just be that it's not running for some reason.
As for the panels, you might be able to restore them by going back to the Alt-F2 Run dialog and typing "gnome-panel".
I'm not really familiar with Fedora, but I hope what I've written above helps.
