When I upgraded from Ubuntu 9.4 to 9.10, the desktop icon changed to the image of a page, and the panel icon became a red circle with a slash on a black background. How do I get the proper icon back?

Well, the problem was finding that icon file, your post helped me to believe it was there, someplace, I did find it, and everything looks as it should. Thanks.
If a shortcut is still working then you should find the location of the program in the Properties of that shortcut or you can go to the Desktop directory in your Home directory and inspect the .desktop file with a Viewer or Editor.
I assume that you are on Linux as well?
Did you right-click that desktop icon and open the Properties?
There you should see the location of the program file in the command field.
You can click the icon and browse to that folder and then open the icons folder.
