It might be a potentially unwanted program that was installed on your computer when you downloaded other programs unwittingly. If it can't be removed from Windows Control Panel, try some free uninstall tools like Revo Uninstaller. Or you can uninstall it using Windows registry but this may be risky if you are not familiar with it. In addition, such unwanted programs may also change your browser settings like the default homepage. If you have trouble fixing these issues, the manual guide in the following post may be helpful.

    Run advanced system care from www.iobit.com and that should help. It is a free programme as well.

SOURCE: I need to restore icons on desktop, tried to do

I am not sure that the screen saver is making problems.
Screen savers turn on after at least one minute of no activity, and turn off when you move your mouse or press a button on your keyboard.

Start your PC in 'SAFE MODE' . Are there your desktop icons?
Disable or uninstall the screen saver and and restart in 'Normal mode'.

Regards.

You probably have the S.M.A.R.T. virus. Bring it to a PC shop that specializes in virus/malware removal for a set price. This virus infestation is serious trouble.

However if you feel you can fix it on your own. Check for viruses and malware. But be warned the S.M.A.R.T. virus is extremely difficult to completely remove and you'll need to restore all your icons as well.

Boot your computer into "safe mode with networking" by pressing F8 several times at startup until the boot screen comes up. Then select "safe mode with networking".

Once you're up and running: You can get good FREE anti-virus and anti-malware apps from here:
