Hello,

I was recently infected by the Windows Restore virus. I went through procedures and am mostly confident that I have successfully removed the virus, but I still cannot see my desktop icons even though I know they have not been wiped out. Can someone assist me in putting them back on my desktop. Running Windows XP.

Thank you in advance.
