Hi,

If you have not emptied your Recycle bin, - right click the Recycle bin
and click Open - if the Public Desktop folder is there, click it and
click Restore this item.

Re: how to reinstall public /desktop

firstly I'm not sure if this will work

enter *shellublic\desktop* into the start menu search bar and press
enter, and It should recreate your missing folder. If the folder exists
(like on my set up), it takes you to the folder and standard function
for special shell folders is to create them if they do not exist

I would backup any important files. Then boot from the OS CD and try a
repair...
