you don't tell us what distro you're using or what desktop environment you run yet we're supposed to be able to guess? ok i guess at fedora. i guess at gnome and i guess that nautilus crashed. open a console and restart it by running "nautilus"

i wasn't asking you to find a command or a service or whatever... Ijust wanted you to type in the letters n, a, u, t, i, l, u and s, then press enter.
