If you are talking about the my documents, my computer, my network places, etc...

try to use this:

; Put My Computer Shortcut on Desktop

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel]

"{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000

; Put My Network Places Shortcut on Desktop

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel]

"{208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000

; Put My Documents Shortcut on Desktop

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel]

"{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}"=dword:00000000

; Put Printers Shortcut on Desktop

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D}]

@=" "

; Put Scheduled Tasks Shortcut on Desktop

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}]

@=" "

; Put Network Connections Shortcut on Desktop

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{992CFFA0-F557-101A-88EC-00DD010CCC48}]

@=" "

Hope you find it helpful, all you have to do is to put it in a .reg file

There're various ways to hide/restore these icons.

My Computer, My Documents, My Network Places, Recycle Bin are all special folders.

1. R click Desktop > Properties > Desktop > Customize Desktop > General > Desktop icons

2. TweakUI

3. reg (as above)
