Do you have TweakUI?

If so go to the Control Panel menu option and ensure that all the icons you want to appear are selected.

The other thing is that you may have gone from being the Administrator to a Restricted User/Type account.

Try booting in to Safe Mode, logging-on as Administrator, backing up your files to a different location, deleting the current account that you use and recreating it.

Double Click "My Computer" (it is your computer, but MS called it My Computer". Select menu item "Tools" Then "Folder Options", in Tasks, Tick "Show Common Tasks in Folders".

If you lost "My (your) Computer" as well. Right Click any point on desktop and select "Properties" "Desktop" "Customize Desktop" and then tick anything you want to display.
