solved intuitivelly

Thanks, Shawn, I will use the method You provided in future.
I solved the issue other way - regedit, search. Replaced to "0" where is "disable something" and replaced to "1" where "enabled".
All missing desktop icons (shortcuts to programs) returned back instantly after restart and ability to check these two boxes also.
sorry for bad spelling
