Desktop Icons missing

  aich 22:12 05 Mar 07

The Icons on my Desktop for "My computer", "My Network Places" and "My Documents" have all disappeared. I run XP set up for 2 users and these icons do not show on either Desktop. I have tried System Restore but it doesn't seem to make any difference unless I need to go back further. Yesterday I ran CCleaner and Adaware, but I run these regularly anyway with no problems. does anyone have any ideas how I can get these back? Due to a problem I had with windows installer starting to load for Sonic update I deselected isuspm and issch in msconfig. as suggested in an answer to a similar problem on this site.

Start you pc in safe mode this re-builds the icon database, then re-start as normal then go to click here and download Tweak UI.

This should resolve it.
