Cause:
Active desktop is enabled

Solution:
If you do not want the Active desktop you can simply click your desktop with your right mouse button, click on Active Desktop, and uncheck View as a web page. This will not allow you to view your desktop as a web page, however, it will fix your issue.

If you do wish to view your desktop as a Web page, to get your icons back click Start / Settings / Control Panel / double-click on the Display icon, click the effects tab and un-check the option "Hide icons when the desktop is viewed as a web page".

How did you delete the icons?

Does the system start in Safe Mode (tap F8 at startup)?
