I WAS able to do this:

I opened the cmd window and typed "c:" and then "cd Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication Data". I then did a "dir /a" which showed all of the files in that directory. I found the ones which were created on the date, and at the time, that the infection occurred. I was then able to go back into Windows Explorer and use the properties to set everything to visible (not hidden). I was then able to delete the three files which were masking my desktop icons.

Some of the icons were grayed out and some were bright. This is because they are hidden. I went into Explorer and right clicked on c:Documents and Settings and selected properties. I then unchecked "hidden" and applied that setting to all files and folders in the c:Documents and Settings hierarchy. That made all of my icons bright again.

All of my icons are in columns and not where I had the set prior. I still have not figured out how to get to system restore to bring the unit back to a date prior to the infection. If I figure that out, I will post that info.
