This has happened the last three times that i have logged on,i have my shortcuts on screen then a window (like an explorer window)pops up with all my desktop shortcuts in thumbnail view in it,it seemed to have started after i downloaded a registry tweaker off a thread in this forum,auslogics,i tried a restore from yesterday but it still appeared,thanks for any assistance,

Try running a system file scan Start > Run > type sfc /scannow If you are using XP you may need your XP Disc. If you are using Vista you need to run sfc /scannow from the command prompt opened by right click and choose "Run as administrator"

No luck im afraid, it popped back up,luckily i have an acronis backup so i will reinstall that and see if it cures it, i will tick this thread,and thanks again rawprawn.

Morning all,i decided to perform a restore rather than use acronis,it seems to have worked,just to let you all know result.
