Missing Desktop Icons and Files

Specs: Windows Vista
All of a sudden my desktop icons and files disappeared. System restore finally gave me back the icons and folders; however, all the data in the folders is still missing. Would like to know if anyone has an idea as to what caused this and do I need to worry that it will happen again. Also scan the system files and it stated that some of the windows files were corrupted. How would I go about fixing this problem.

Icon in the desktop misses when a process called "explorer.exe" was terminated.
If you face this problem again
> Go to task manager
> In "Applications" tab click "New Task"
> In the dialogue box type "explorer.exe" and hit enter
> You can get your missing Icon back.

Thank you :-)
