Back up your files then reinstall Windows 7 from the DVD or do a factory recovery, whichever of those two methods applies to your PC/laptop.

Try the EXE fix from here:

If necessary I would try Windows System Restore (to a date before the problem came along) before Factory Restore which loses everything. Just type System Restore in search.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

From Derek's link you might also want to apply the LNK fix as most of the desktop icons are probably shortcuts.

Yes, DAVE is right, if the EXE fix doesn't sort it then use the LNK fix.
