Desktop Not Appearing

Windows XP Pro SP3 had trojan.fakealert. Cleaned it off, but it had changed the desktop theme, etc. Removed that, but desktop is now only showing blue background and no icons.

  1. Try right clicking anywhere on the desktop and choose 'Arrange Icons By'. Select 'show desktop icons'.
  2. Press ctrl+alt+delete, and open the task manager. Go to file-->new task-->type explorer.exe and press enter. That should bring back your desktop icons and taskbar.
