You can go to www.facebook.com and sign in there to get your messages.
If you know about that and say "I want an Icon", then you can do that while in Facebook.

Click and hold on the URL Icon of facebook. then drag it to your desktop. Now you'll have the Icon. ...I hope.
Hope this helps.

Lost all icons from desktop


The use of desktop icons has served to simplify opening and using programs in Microsoft Windows.
With a simple click of the mouse, an entire program can be opened.
Unfortunately those desktop icons can also be deleted, sometimes accidentally or sometimes by the desktop cleaning utility that runs in Windows, but there is a simple process to recover desktop icons.
Just follow these steps.

Click it without a ticket.
To restore lost desktop icons, first place your mouse anywhere in a blank area on your desktop. Once you have placed your cursor in an unused area of the desktop, right click.
Check the pop up.
Once you have right-clicked your mouse in the unused area of your desktop you will receive a pop up menu or prompt.
Choose "Properties" by left clicking it with your mouse.

Grab that tab. Once you have clicked on "Properties" you will receive a dialog box.
Click on the tab labeled "Desktop."
Customize it.
Once you have clicked the "Desktop" tab choose "Customize Desktop" which will prompt another dialog box to open.
From there click on the "General" tab.
Restore order.
After you have clicked the "General" tab you will see a list of icons.
Simply choose the icons you want restored or placed on the desktop and then click "OK."
That's it.
You have now successfully restored your desktop icons.

Using Windows 7.(Lost Desktop Icon).


Click the mouse "down" onto the "nearby" icon, and then "drag" that icon to move it somewhere a few inches away. The "missing" icon may now become visible.

Or, if you have used "auto-arrange desktop icons", look everywhere on your desktop for the "new" location of the icon.

Cant find icon to back up


Funny you should rate my last solution post, almost there, yet you cleaned the temp files, surely thats problem solved??, along with instructions to convert to ntfs You should find the backup programme on accessories>system tools> backup. If it's not there then you have to get hold of an XP cd and look in the 1386 folder, open NTBACKUP folder and run the installation.
