No folder icons - ctrl panel & My Computer- win 98

My Win98 machine has suddenly started booting with no visible icons in
Control Panel or My Computer. Explorer however is fine, showing icons, but
many of my applications won't run and throw errors (?????)

A scanreg /restore, although stated successful, hasn't had any effect.

Does anyone have any clues please?
Many thanks.

Download / install tweaksUI from microsoft and run the rebuild icon option

If you have a Win98 disc put it in the computer and stop the auto start by holding down the shift key until the Light stops flashing on the drive, Then Go to Start\Run Type in the box SFC press OK and run the Program you can also look for deleted files if you go into the settings box and put a tick in the relevant box

Thanks guys. I'll give this a go and post back. Do you know what may have caused this in the first instance?

Decided to format & reinstall Win in the end, but still at a loss as to what may have caused this.
Thanks guys.
