I tried refreshing it, restarting, but still, there are no icons on my desktop. there are names, but the icon is just the unknown file type icon. same with inside my documents and stuff, this isn't too fun.

any ideas?
If I'm posting, I probably have something horribly wrong with my computer, there's no obvious explanation for it, that's just the way it is.

Right-click anywhere on your Desktop and select View
Is the box by Show Desktop Icons ticked?
