All Desktop Icons have disapeared!

I started my machine and tried to install my old nero ... not compatible with vista based systems ..... so i tried to uninstall it and it refused with an error saying that i had files missing ... so i shut it down and came back a few hours later and turned my machine on and now all my desktop icons disappeared for no reason (even recycle bin).. is there a way to fix this???
