Right click on an empty spot on your desktop and choose Properties from the drop-down menu. In the newly opened window, go to the Desktop tab and click the 'Customize Desktop...' button, anopther window should open. In the new window choose the General tab. Now, under Desktop icons, check the checkbox near 'My Network Places'. Click OK in all open windows.
