    Are you still logged into the User account that you used before?
    Maybe check Users in Control Panel, just in case there's more than 1, (in this case you would need to logout and then log into your usual User account)

    Also here are the Repair steps for Windows XP, is this what you have done?
    Microsoft's Windows XP Professional Repair Install step by step
    Microsoft's Windows XP Home Repair Install step by step

    It is possible that you need to right click on the Desktop -> Properties -> Desktop -> Customize Desktop -> and then tick to enable some of the common icons
