    The newly installed operating system does not have anything on its desktop. So this is the reason you have got a blank desktop when you restored your computer.For getting the general desktop icons follow these steps

    1. Right click on the desktop and select the properties
    2. Now you find many menu tabs. from that select Desktop menu tab
    3. At the bottom you will find an option called "Customize your desktop". click on that
    4. Now you find the check boxes beside my computer, my documents, and internet explorer, my network places
    5. check all the check boxes and click on ok


    Now all the general desktop icons will be appeared on the desktop
