Missing Desktop Icons/Folders

  peterleemaxwell 13:06 10 Sep 2005

On a re-start using Win. XP Pro some icons and folders I had on the desktop disappeared. Is there a registry folder with them in? Or any place they might be? Thanks for any replies.

System Retore?

System Restore doesn't backup your personal data, just settings. But it MAY help with the Icons

Have you tried right-clicking the Desktop, pointing to Arrange Icons By and then clicking on Show Desktop Icons (this shows or hides the icons).

Thanks for all the suggestions. I give them a try.
