First of all we have no mention of which operating system you are using, we also have no mention of what lead to this condition, or not much details of what is happening.  If you are using windows xp right click on the desktop, you should get a drop down menu, select "arrange icons by:" then close to the bottom of the list ensure there is a check mark beside "show desktop icons". If not move your cusor to highlight this item and then left click on the item. YOur icons should now appear. Unless your system is infected with a virus.
