    i have only 2 icons

    well if i right click on the desktop i have this option
    display medium icon

    Hi, there are already a couple of long threads on this topic. There appears to be no solution apart from restoring a working situation. This problem has occurred in previous versions of Windows and is widely reported.

    It might occur because of sthg you have installed. You will probably find that the explorer folder view settings don't stay set the same either.

    Please see the threads and search e.g. 'Desktop icons keep moving\rearranging' etc.

    Some people have suggested it happened after an update, some that it's related to using a particular AV, one itunes.... there are several 'fixes' that have been suggested including by 'AskVG' - well known site. But these fixes don't solve all situations.I

    Hopefully you have a disk image or enabled system restore...
