If your mouse works:
Right Click on the blank Screen
You get a pop up menu
look for View Desktop Icons
Place a tick mark for it.
Now you should get your icons back
Hope this will work for you.

Log on/off windows XP home edition


I think you should have been little more clear about your question.
I think you might be facing the problem with logon and logoff .
If the Icons are not displayed in the start menu. Then follow the steps below.
Right click the start
select properties
in this pop up menu click on Classic start menu.
Then click on customise icon.
in this list check(select) the log off text.
click ok
again click Apply and Ok.
Now you go to start and see there would be a log off icon in start menu.

Acer 5315 not working after I log on!!!


There are a couple of different ways you may have lost your icons. They could have disappeared when you installed a certain program or even when you upgraded to a new operating system.
To enable those icons and more, right click on your desktop and choose Properties. Click on the Desktop tab and hit the Customize Desktop button. Next, under the General tab, check off any of the icons you want to appear on your desktop.
Once you do that, they will all be returned to your desktop in full view. You can choose from the icons of My Documents, My Computer, My Network Places and Internet Explorer. Now, on the other hand, you may want to take some of those icons off your desktop. If that's the case, just uncheck them and they will be out of your way.
