Sadly, there is no straightforward command you can use to recover them, but well, there are three ways, really, that you can get your icons back, depending on which ones were lost, that you are referring to. for this, I'm assuming you're running a more recent version of Windows.
----- For Windows XP ------
1) for recently deleted icons- check your Recycle bin, they could still be there.

2)for system-installed icons, such as My Computer, and Internet Explorer- you can recover these by going into your Display Properties (Start -> Control Panel -> Display). Select the Desktop tab, and click on Customize Desktop. Make sure the "General" tab is selected, then, under the "Desktop icons" section, tick off the icons you want to restore. click on "Ok" when you're finished, and Presto! those icons are up on your screen.

3)If the above two options don't work, you may have to add them manually ( a pain, I know). To add a shortcut in this fashion, right-click anywhere on the desktop, and select New -> Shortcut. you will have another window appear on your screen, asking you where the file you are making a shortcut to is located, and what you want to call it. follow the steps, and when you're finished, you should have a working icon. (another option would be to reinstall the software that made the icons, but that's also a pain in itself.).

----for windows vista ----

1) check the Recycle Bin (same procedure as Windows Xp, although, if your recycle bin option is deleted, then you have a problem that can be solved by using #2)

2) For system-installed shortcuts- follow This excellent tutorial.

3)Manually installing shortcuts- same as for XP.

Blank page


I believe you are talking about short-cuts on the desktop.

If you have the program on the Start Menu you can copy the shortcut there and paste it into the desktop to restore the icon.

If the icon produces blank pages, it may have been a program that required a specific command to install it. Once you have deleted it, the only way to restore the icon properly is to re-install the program and tick "put short-cut on desktop".

Try going to dll-files.com and download the necessary file. Copy that file to C:\Windows\System. Hopefully this works for you. If not, you could also reinstall Windows which will reinstall the necessary files.

Deleting


Error -43 is the common "File Not Found" error.  This can also mean a folder is not found. (A Google search for "macintosh error codes" returns a complete list from Apple at http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1618.)  I don't know why it would say this unless the files really don't exist.
Dragging an item to the Trash doesn't usually require a password unless you are not the owner of the item.  This can occur when copying items from another user's account, for example.
Try selecting all of the items that you want to delete, hold down the Option key, and choose Show Inspector from the File menu.  In the Sharing & Permissions area at the bottom of the Inspector window, verify that you have permission to delete the files.  If not, click the lock icon, type an administrator's username and password, then change the Privilege to Read & Write (you might have to use the + icon to add yourself to the list before changing anything).
Close the Inspector window and delete the items.  This should do the trick.
