Norton kept telling me I had a mailicious script at start-up located in a file I believe was "windows system.hta" which I found in the startup menu. I deleted it. Now I have no icons on my desktop, although the programs are all available in my program file. I've tried dragging a propgram to create an icon but it doesn't work. It might be that the icons are just "turned of" somewhere, but I can't remember where to look. Help!

That was probably a critical startup file which loads your desktop icons. Try using system restore and see if that fixes your problem.

Try this.
Right click on Desktop, go to( Arrange icons by), then see if (Show desktop
icons) is checked.

This is really great.

I lost all my desktop icons by clicking on something :tazz:
while downloading the Clean up software.

I remembered reading this very question here today.

How fortunate to find the remedy to this problem!

I right clicked on my desktop picture and then clicked on arrange
icons and show on desktop and they are all back on the screen.

YAY and THANKS!
