Losing Desktop Icons

  Lionheart ? 20:01 26 May 2004

When ever I click to open my computer, I am losing all the icons on the desktop and the task bar disappears. A reboot sorts it for a short time the will play up again.

Any ideas, have done the usual checks for virus etc.

Right click on the Desktop, select Arrange Icons By, then select Show Desktop Icons.

Sorry that's the best I can do short of a repair.

Thanks desktop is already set as you suggest.

Also just noticed if click taskbar, select properties nothing happens, so it looks like a repair job.

Have you tried Scandisc with the repair option ticked? Am I expecting too much to consider this a general remedy?

Did a repair, seems to have cured the problem, what ever it was.
