    In XP, go to your start button and then choose "help and support". You will see an option to "undo changes to your computer with system restore". It will give you a calender and you can pick a date. You can also schedule dates when the computer will save all the settings if you like.

    Right click on your blank desktop and choose

    Arrange Icons by........

    Then make sure there is a check mark beside " Show Desktop Icons "



    GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!
