Go to Control Panel \ Personalize (or right-click on the desktop and select Personalize), and then choose the link for “Change Desktop Icons” on the left-hand side.Now you can chose the icons you want back on the desktop by checking the box next to the name:Click the Apply button, and you should see the icon show up on the desktop immediately.

If you can't get to Control Panel, then tap F8 while the computer is booting up. Select "Safe Mode". You might then be able to get to the Control Panel to try suggestion #1.

Safe Mode looks a bit weird but it will be OK again when you reboot.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
