Welcome to Bleeping Computer.
Has someone else had access to your machine. A common prank is to take a picture of the desktop and set it as the wall paper and then set Windows to not show desktop icons.
Can you put a new icon on the desktop and does it work?

Do the files open if you right click the icon and select Open?

CCleaner may have damaged shell stuff in the registry. Got to be careful with that program. I would suggest reversing what ccleaner has supposedly fixed and restore from it's backup.

Boot into Safe Mode and test if issue resolves within Safe Mode.
Something telling me its your antivirus program causing the problem.

Thanks, for all your info. I did discover my problem. I backtracked till I remembered I downloaded a new Opera package. I realized the problem started after that. So on a hunch, I uninstalled that program, and now everything is working great again. But I do appreciate everyone's suggestions and advice.
