I installed debian wheezy on a virtual box hard disk but I don't see any desktop icons and things like desktop shorcuts don't work.
I have the latest updates.
How do I fix this?

What desktop environment? Gnome comes with a plain desktop. Move the mouse to the border or the upper right corner. Does it help? If it doesn't help or it's not Gnome post a screenshot.
Where did you download the installation or virtual machine? 32 or 64 bit? What size of Hard disk did you use? How much CPU / Ram? Where did you place the virtual box files / snapshots? Local or on network?
Could you copy the error message?
If you get me a link for the virtual machine, I could try it out on my own...
