your question is not clear, but as i understand your desktop icon has been hidden. try to unhide by right click on task bar and select show the desktop.

Or if you want to show particular item like (mycomputer, mydocuments etc) from start programs menu, point the cursor to that icon and right click, finally click on show on desktop.

Sometimes explorer.exe fails and display only wallpaper (no icons, no taskbar...) you can try hit ctrl+alt+supr, go to task manager, kill explorer.exe and run again.

Go to C:\users and find the user account in there should be a folder of desktop if you can see the icons in there then they should still be there, check to see if anymore folders have been created for your user what you want to do is log on as administrator and remove the folders and then try and log in with that account again in which you should see the icons.

Do you get a temporary profile message when you log in? This could also be why
