All the Desktop items have dissappeared from my main screen (the wallpaper/background works fine). I tried a fix listed on this board, which involved right clicking Desktop, properties, web...and unchecking that option, but it wasn't checked to begin with. We have the Basic Windows XP background up that comes standard.

When I rightclick the desktop and view the desktop via explorer, they are all there in the folder. They just aren't on the main screen. When I add new ones, they dissapear too.

My taskbar is working just fine.

Thanks for any advice you can offer!
