Default Aero glass icon and show desktop icon

Hello all. Have a slight issue but nothing serious and life threatening..Anyways i have Vista Home Premium installed. Now in Xp i was used to having my quick launch located at the top of my screen. So testing and tweaking i accidentally deleted my quick launch..no biggie i recreated it put it in the respective folder however now i am missing the show desktop icon and the aero glass icon. I have since thrown the xp tweak to recreate the show desktop icon. My question is i have searched and searched for this issue and keeps defaulting to the windows XP show desktop icon fix. fine but i was hoping to restore the aero glass icon that belongs there without having to reinstall Vista as i started to pile up my new 320 GB drive. Your input much appreciated. Cheers.
