Are you positive you installed a legitimate AV ? What AV was it and where did you download it from ? AV installs do not hide your icons, but infections do.

Sounds like you installed a fake anti-virus. Go here http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/248626-45-simple-free..., run though the guide to remove the virus/spyware.

Then you need to select your profile in the C:\Documents and Settings folder and uncheck the Hidden setting on the Desktop and Start Menu. Do the same thing for All Users.
