Deleted Icons return.

Can you tell me how to get rid of certain icons that kee re-appearing each time I have deleted them,then re-booted. Once done, they are back again, and so it goes on ad infinitum. I'd be grateful for any assistance you can give me, as this one is most certainly doing my head in as I dont know how to deal with it.Thanks.

Can you give a little more detail about the icons, are they desktop or toolbar.....or whatever?

Actually, I have just done a re-install of my system, and before doing so did a back-up of the system ready to replace when the re-install was completed. It is part of that back-up that is causing the problems because I asked that they be placed on my desktop. Each time I try to get rid of the 56 icons/files. they return on re-boot.By the way I am running IE7 and Windows XP Home Edition.

I hope that assists you.
