There are some minor issues:
1.Actually, I have some problems about Icons. Some of them cannot normally be shown in control panel. How can they be recovered?

Even though I have installed an Anti-Virus, the computer still notifies me not finding any Anti-Virus.How can I fix it?

For the icons in control panel, try this: LINK

If that doesn't work, you'll need to find your Windows XP DVD and let me know when you've done so.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For the Security Center warning, that doesn't necessarily mean you don't have an antivirus. It could be alerting you that you have Windows Firewall turned off, or a number of other things.

Click the icon and find out what it's telling you.

Hello TheShooter93,
I have used the first approach you suggested but there seems nothing to happen.Moreover, I tried to use a XP CD to recover the Window(But not reinstall it). The problem still happens. Thanks for your effort to help me.

Paul

Paul61112002, you could try to rebuild the icon cache by making sure Show hidden files and folders is enabled > open Computer and navigate to C:\Documentsts and Settings\*user*\Local Settings\Application Data > delete the file IconCache > Reboot.

Really appreciate your effort to follow my case.
First of all, I am not really familiar with System Restore, can you give me some ways or hints to do that? Indeed, I have only created points which the file has already corrupted. Therefore performing system restore seems happen nothing.
Second, I have tried the way bludgard proposed but nothing happens.

What do you mean by; "nothing happens"? Do you mean to say that you deleted the file but the issue returned? Or you could not access the file?

I hate to throw another link at you, Paul; Adding or removing icons in Windows Control Panel. It's a bit winded; hopefully apropriate. As I can barely read my own language, I could not translate the missing icons. :lol: I think one may have been Keyboard?

I also can not read the language that you have your system set to.
Exactly what does it say below the missing icons?
In the beginning there was the command line.

Hi, Paul. It is great that the problem has been resolved. Would you mind sharing how it was resolved? I'm just curious; and maybe the knowledge of how you fixed it could help out another poor soul who has run into this issue.
Thanks.

Indeed, the icons of fax, font, scanner and internet connection were missed(I don't know another icon's English name). I have used an software to fix them. Again, thanks very much for all your help.

Paul
