To answer your first question, I prefer Spybot Search & Destroy for taking care of spyware.  http://www.safer-networking.org  (Thought I'd get that in there before someone posts the obligatory links to 30 other spyware products.)

The second issue could be a spyware or virus problem.  What happens when you try to access icons on your desktop?
