Are you able to operate your system after it is started. I mean open Windows Explorer ??? Mouse working ?? etc ??

if its only the desktop icons, then try this:

Right Click on Dekstop >> Arrange Icons By >> Show Desktop Icons

    do one thing... restart your system... when you see the initial Windows Load Screen... press+hold your Left SHIFT key ... keep it pressed until your windows operating system is loaded fully... (if you have a logon screen where you have to enter username/pass, release shift key for a while, enter your user details and press the SHIFT key again immediately after pressing enter)

    try if this works...??

Icons appear on my wallpaper page that are of programs I wish to keep for reference, but do not want on my wallpaper


Open Explorer (right click on the start button), create a folder named Storage (or any name you like), then drag the icons into that folder.

Another method would be to right-click on the icon "send To" My Documents" or to a Compressed Folder.

Try to re-boot the computer into Safe Mode (continually Press F8 while you boot up.

Then select safe mode from the list of options (use arrow keys)

If you can boot into safe mode, then try to see why the computer will not boot, perhaps you have recently installed a new software program, update, etc.

Good Luck

I think you will find, if you go to Power Settings, you will find your answer. It has been set for maximum system performance and minimum windows looks.
There is nothing wrong with the wallpaper, it is just removed to utilize maximum speed from the processing.
Hope this helps.

Dell - No icons or start button


to get your Icons back try this.
  1. Right-click the desktop.
  2. Point to Arrange Icons By.
  3. Click Show Desktop Icons.
I would also try this.
Another quick shot, is goto Start, Run, type "msconfig", and click the tab saying DIAGNOSTIC. click apply, restart, and see if your icons are there.

Then I would run a virus scan. you could have a virus on the machine. I recommend MalwareBytes for virus removal. you can get it at www.Download.com
