missing icons

I have 3 different people, with no connection to each other, that have
called me today.
All are running Win XP.
Seems that they turned on their computers today or yesterday and all their
icons are missing.
The only thing that they are able to get to is the task manager, nothing
else.
I haven't heard of any virus'/ trojan's/ or malware resently that causes
this and reading ton's of descriptions takes too long.
Hoped someone might know something about this problem.

They probably have spyware or a virus. Repair xp, and run the antispy app.

If you run an XP "Upgrade"setup, from the original, or "Gold" version of the setup CD, and you have SP2 installed, it might go into
a setup loop, and you could lose your install. Uninstall SP2, BEFORE you Upgrade setup from CD (that lacks sp2 on it.)
