OK, here is the problem. All of my desktop icons have disappeared. The taskbar is still there and everything else is working fine. I've tried the "Show Desktop" option and that does not work. I've tried changing the background and making sure active desktop is off, and it is not being viewed as a web page. There is only one user on the PC, and if I go to the "Desktop" folder of the account, all of the shortcuts are there, they are just not showing up on the actual desktop. I have also tried creating new icons on the desktop, but they wont show up either. I also tried to right click on the desktop and that did not work. Itried a few registry tweaks without success so I am at witts end. Please Help.
