Desktop Quick Launch Icon opens Spybot

My desktop quick launch icon opens a spybot box and not the desktop (it doesn't launch spybot). I have Windows XP. How do I get it to open the desktop again please?

Thanks, I did that and the icon is there but it still only opens Spybot. I just uninstalled Spybot and now when I click on the desktop icon nothing happens at all??????

Try my advice again then install Spybot if it works.

.....and delete the icon before you use phono's fix to restore it.

Did it all again as both phono and Sea Urchin suggested but nothing happens when I click on the icon.

Good call, I forgot about that one.
