Lost Icons

  DÕ DÕ 14:54 23 Dec 04

I have just unistalled a Themes software programme I downloaded which has left me with bits & pieces which I have finally cleared but I am still left with a icon problem.
I am using Windows XP Professional and the following icons seemed to have dissapeared from my desktop they are "My Computer",My Documents & the "Recyle Bin".I have done a search but am unable to find them.
Can any one help please.

try a right-click anywhere on your desktop, then arrange icons\show desktop icons,

or control panel\display\desktop\customise desktop, and enable the icons, although 'recycle bin' isn't an option from there.

right right click on your desktop background and go to properties then click the "desktop" Tab on the window that appears then click "Customize Desktop..." Then at the top click the boxes that you wish to apear on the desktop. And then click ok then click apply and they should show up.

Hope this helps

these icons are located in the file "shell32.dll" which is in the c:\windows\system32 directory
