First could you provide me more information on your machine? What O/S are you using?

I cant help you until i know what O/S you are using. For now though you can check to make sure that "Show desktop icons" is checked.

Have you done any malware or anti-virus scans? If so what were the results of those scans?

Also as dnthns87 has stated more information would be helpful.

Right click in an empty part of your home screen. A dialogue box will appear. Click view and see if the "view desktop icons" option is checked.
