My Desktop Icons?

When I click on my desktop items, a panel comes up saying '' Windows cannot find www.what ever the site is, Make sure you typed the name in correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click start, then click search.
The only ones it brings up when I click on them is, my hotmail, Adaware and Spybot.

I have to go to My Favourites, which come up straight away.

I am on XP.

Thanks, Any help appreciated.

I will most definately say you have spyware infections. Even though you have the one listed I suggest to run this free one:
Click link: http://www.smcus.net/SUPERAntiSpyware.exe. after it is done and delete your issues you may have to make another user account (click on picture next to your name in Start menue) and move your files over.
Hope this helps!

Where are my icons


If you are in Windows and all your desktop icons have vanished, do the following:

On the desktop, right-click the mouse.
Select VIEW.
Look at the bottom of the list for the item that says
"SHOW DESKTOP ICONS". It should have a check mark with it.

If it does not, select it to get a check mark and your icons should reappear.

My kids have put a picture on my desktop and i don't have no icons on it I'm trying to get the icons back on my desktop


Move your mouse to the bottom of the screen and right-click once. Then you should have a "Show Desktop" option or un-check the "Hide Desktop icons" Click that and all your icons should re-appear. Unless of course they actually deleted your icons :'

Desktop Icons have shadows and a blue box around title. How do i get rid of this ?


This border on desktop icons can be created when the desktop items have been locked, to unlock the desktop web items right click on an empty area of your desktop. Now select Arrange icons by and uncheck 'Lock web items on desktop' if it has a little tick next to it. If you did not have a tick here then Right click on your my computer icon and view its properties, now click the advanced tab and then on the settings button under performance. Now on the visual effects tab scroll down the list of effects to 'use drop shadows for icon labels on desktop' and put a tick in the box next to it, then click ok. This should remove the shadow border from your desktop icons.
