Unremovable icons on desktop

Download and run adaware and also spybot.
It looks like you have collected a pile of spyware.

What do you mean when you say you can't remove them? Do you mean you delete them then they reappear after you reboot or do yu get an error when trying to delete them?

You should run ad-aware and spybot search & destroy - links to both can be found in General: Essential Security software.

You should also make sure you have an up to date software firewall and anti-virus software running (with the definitions updated).
