    you may have a wallpaper (active desktop) that might be blocking or removing the icons. Remove the wallpaper and also check the desktop options in the display properties to see if these icons are checked.

    Go to C:\Documents and Settings\<your user name>\Desktop

    If there&#39;s nothing in that folder then that&#39;s why nothing is on the desktop. If there is something, then I&#39;m not quiet sure

    I&#39;ll ask and read around and see if I can find anything else on it. Just make sure you are not using active desktop.
