You may also want to scan for malware/virus infection.
It's the most common cause of that kind of problem.

Suggestion :
Assuming your taskbar is still working.....

Right click at Taskbar > Task Manager > Processes tab > right click explorer.exe > End process > Applications tab > New Task... > in the Open box, type explorer.exe > OK

Hope this will bring your desktop icons back to normal.
