I have windows 7 ultimate (64bit). My desktop icons are not appearing on desktop even if i create a new one. All the folders are available through windows explorer (desktop folder). What could be the cause of this?

Press F5 to refresh the desktop and your desktop icons will appear.

It is a bug of windows 7 and windows update fixes it.
