Windows V7 icons and desktop stopped working??

We have just installed an new Windows V7 Pro workstation into our domain. All seems to function correctly, untill we connect to the Internet. Internet explorer works just fine, but as soon as we have run this, the desktop and icons just stop working!!

Even if we close Internet Explorer, the problem remains. We can access the Start button and run all programs from here, but we cannot run them from the desktop. Right clicking the desktop also does nothing. The Icons on the toolbar at the bottom still function correctly.

I have checked the task manager, and all seems to be OK. Nothing at all in the event log.

Does anyone have any suggestions for this very frustrating problem.

I can also add that everything still works, even when we are using internet explorer, it is only when we exit internet explorer that the problem occurs.

The only way I have found to resolve it, is to log off and log back on again.

Hope this helps.

Not sure what the problem was, but I created a new profle for the user and it resolved the problem!

Thanks for all who tried to help.
