You probably have a virus. Your best bet is to download these two free programs and run them each twice alternating. Spybot and Adaware. Do not set them up to monitor, only to scan. Then have them fix any issues that they find.

well once you find the program in "All Programs" in your start menu can "Create a shortcut" by right clicking the program under the start program and selected create a shortcut or "Pin to the start menu" or If you have a different problem just post another comment. I'm assuming the icon is gone from the desktop? or your homepage. (Are you talking about a website?)

The desktop is empty


First a question; you say you only have the background and cursor does that mean literally everything else is gone including the start button in the lower left and the task manager in the lower right? Or do you mean that all your icons, shortcuts, folders and files you had on your desktop are gone?
