Eight click on your desktop, Left click Personalize, On the left you will see Change Desktop Icons, click there and just check the icons you want displayed on your dektop. as for the programs that you dont have access to, goto my computer, then your c:\ drive, look for users and then look for the user name you were logged in with when you did the update you should then see a list of folder and one should be Desktop, go in there and the files should be stored in there.

If that doesnt get you a full solution then ask me with more specific program info and I will get you the specifc answers you need
