    Hello friend,



    Don't worry i have the solution for your problem just do as i say...........

    1.Firstly move your mouse cursor to the bottom of your screen.

    2.If the mouse becomes double headed arrow.

    3.Then you press and hold the left mouse button.

    4.Now enlarge it so you can get the start menu on your desktop.

    After that try to restart you computer so that you can get your icons back.

    Have a nice day........
