Thank you for your help. I've done everything, including copying what you said into terminal.
They are still not there, how do I replace them??
Thanks again, sorry! I'm hopeless!

Something might have changed in ML.
Rebuild LaunchServices Database
YOu can run this line of code copy and paste
/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchSe rvices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user
Return, It takes nearly a 60-80 secs to complete be patient it will put you back out at the prompt,
It is possible in Mountain Lion a SafeBoot may rebuild the Launch Service Database if the above is not effective.

A similar thing happened to me. I solved it by right clickng on the desktop, selecting 'Sort By', then selecting 'Date Added'. The icons repainted. I suspect it doesn't matter what sort criteria you use.
