Disappearing icons

    I have AcerPower FH computers with XP Pro (SP3) with all sorts of Acer
    proprietary security software on it. Since the software was blocking out the
    DVD player and slowing down the machine, I uninstalled them.

    NOW all the icons are gone off of the desktop and start menu for just one
    profile (the one that uses the machine the most). All other users I log on
    as have icons all over the place.

    What can I do to get the icons back? I have used the "Show Desktop Icons"
    method, I have put another copy of explorer.exe (called explorer1.exe) and
    told the registry to use that one, nothin. I have scanned for viruses and
    malware, nothin. I have done everything but put the Acer software back.
    Please help.
