Disappearing icons, help!

Ok a few weeks ago my comp picked up a virus. We did a scan and Nortons quarantined the infected files.

Now, I don't know if it's a result of the virus or if it's unrelated but when I'm on the internet the page will just freeze and stop responding, it does this quite frequently. When I ctrl-alt-del IE it brings me to desktop and moments later all my desktop icons disappear. If I right click and go refresh they'll re-appear for a few seconds and the disappear again. The icons will not re-appear until I reboot, however everything else seems to work fine.

Anyone have any idea what's causing these 2 problems? How can I fix it?
