xp desktop icons keep going off 'n coming on again

  Emperor Penguin 10:06 29 Aug 2004

I have found recently that all the desktop icons will often dissappear or revert to a basic icon and then come back on again in much the same way as when first booting up. This often happens when exiting a programme or sometimes just clicking an icon on the screen will make all the desktop icons disappear and then reappear over the course of a couple of seconds. I'm quite sure it wasn't doing this a few months ago. I have recently started using registry healer and wonder if that could cause this behaviour.
