restore your computer to a previous date. like, a date where your icons were there, and there was nothing wrong with your computer.

According to Mcafee...

Method Of Infection
This worm attempts to use the KaZaa file-sharing network and MSN Messenger instant messaging network to spread. The worm cannot propagate on it's own without either of these programs installed on the local system. It does not contain any other payload other than to propagate.

So why your icons changed is a mystery. You've tried restarting? Try refreshing the desktop by clicking anywhere on the desktop and hitting the F5 key. Why don't you take a screen shot of your desktop and throw it up here.

EDIT:

Check out this link it discusses other options that you might want to explore.
