desktop icons changing names

Hi to all.
I am running xp home.For some reason My Computer and My Network Places icons on the desktop have changed their names to folder.If I simply rename them and restart,they change back again to folder.I also tried system restore to no avail.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks,but I did a restore of my registry cleaner
and it didn't help.
Everthing else on my PC seems to be running fine.
I know that this is only a slight niggle,but i would like to know how to put it right.
Thanks again.

I forgot that i had ultra winclean,as i have no shortcut on the desktop.I have restored the registry from this and all is well.
