Icons gone from screen..w98

My brother has done something to remove most of the icons on his pc..As it is w98 and I have xp,does he have a system restore and does it work like xp?

Would switching off the pc restore them?

Do you mean the Shortcut Icons on the Desktop?

As far as I know that is the case (only been told over the phone)

OK so if that is the case then he should still have an icon called "My Computer" on the desktop.
Windows 98SE does not have a "system restore" but it does have a Registry Restore although I don't think that will work in this case, but maybe worth a try. Try this previous thread and check my response click here if that doesn't work I can tell you the long way round.

He has had to go to work,will not be back on till 8pm..Had a look at the previous thread,will try that when he gets back...Would that also return anything that was in the recycle bin or is that gone forever? Many thanks for the help...

If the recycle bin has been emptied no, its gone.
