    Hello Friend
    If Your windows is not corrupt then the software you have installed have cleaned your desktop and cannot be recovered

    If Your windows is not starting or does not do anything after logged in to windows then you have to reinstall windows

    Hi,

    Your problem can be solved by taking following actions,

    Get your Windows CD for recovering icons missing from your desktop,
    Go to "start" > "run" > sfc /scannow, select "repair" option from the options provided,
    This will reinstall system files those are missing or corrupt from the installer disc.

    If you are unable to access the "Start" option ,use the "TaskManager" to start CMD.EXE then run the sfc command.

    Also, you can try a system Restore using the installer CD and booting from that.

    Thanks.

    now you can see your desktop icon.

    when upgrade the system , many time happen that some icon will missing such as my computer , my network place , Internet explorer etc.you can get back them again on your desktop.

    --> Right click on desktop and select "properties"
    --> select "desktop" tab and then click on "customize desktop"
    --> In the desktop icon , check the box which you want to view on the desktop
    --> click on "ok"

    DEAR FRIEND ,

    Try to fix this with safe mode, once in Safe mode, you can sort of restore your PC's previous system settings,

    by using a little program called System restore.

    To open it go to Start menu>Run and type

    msconfig
    and press enter.
    Now click the Launch System restore button
    You'll see a calendar and you can choose a previous date to restore to and click next.

    then it will restart.


    ALL THE BEST
