Before you do anything, please see this excellent article on resolving your problem:

Windows XP/Vista Recovery rogue - Desktop icons missing - Empty program files

Download and burn Kaspersky Rescue CD to a disk (Download the ISO).

Boot that disk and press any key to go to the menu. Choose your language and accept the agreement. Choose the graphical mode.

When it starts up go to the "start menu" and click terminal. Type "windowsunlocker" (no quotes) in the terminal to start the process. Type the number corresponding with "Unlock Windows" and press Enter.

Restart and all of your icons and your start menu will be back!
