Most times when the desktop icons poof its nothing major. try restarting x. If that does not work try a reboot. Sometimes the desktop does not load properly for me & usually restarting x will fix it.

What version of puppy are you using?

I would suggest giving as much info about what happened as possible. For example did you install an sfs file? did you install a specific program or update the graphics driver?
