✔ Best Answer
Most of the desktop icons are .lnk files. You list your OS as windows 7 but are in the xp forum. If this is happening on a 7 machine you can download the lnk file association fix here:

Or, for XP download the lnk fix here:

I'm not sure if that fixes a lost file association or an incorrect one or both. But give it a try and post back results.

If the above doesn't help try the EXE fix too.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Another to try.

Click Start > In the Search box immediately above the Start button, Copy & Paste > msconfig & in the window that opens, click on msconfig.
In the System Configuration window that opens, in the General section, click on Normal startup, click > Apply & then OK.
