Desktop doesn't show and I don't know why :(

August 24, 2010 at 13:46:28
Specs: Windows XP
Basically the pc's been working fine, it's only a basic system 40gb with about 1.745 of ram..
It was all going fine until I got like a warning from Avast that a 'threat has been detected' then after this I got told it's okay to continue.. but then I got a pop-up saying Antivrus GT will now scan for these infections that were found, and upon this happening I never knew about what Antivirus GT really was, so I went ahead and let it download and do it's thing, but then when avast kept popping up red 'threat detected' signs just before the pop-up appeared again I knew something was up :/
& basically I thought I'd Google it just to find out what it is, but then when the only searches were 'Remove Antivirus GT' I twigged something wasn't right & then set about trying to remove it, I turned off my pc because my mate came round and then when I returned and powered it up I got everything as usual.. it's after I logged on something wasn't right, the Desktop or any icons do not show whatsoever and I had to go into Task manager to open Chrome, iTunes, etc :(
& now i'm doing the same things while i'm posting this, if there's anyone that could help me it would be much appreciated! :)
