Icons on desktop on start up

  The Brigadier 19:43 02 Jun 08

When i turn the pc i get the background picture i have on my desktop, but the desktop icons only seem to appear if i hit F5 refresh.

Anyway to solve this minor but annoying problem?

right click desktop - arranger icons by - tick show desktop icons.

It's ticked already.
Everytime i start it's the same problem until i press F5.

Any other ideas?

I had slow icon loading at one point on one of my XP computers. It just sat their with empty desktop until I hit Enter, no Hard drive activity I finished up doing a Acronis Image reload. methinks it was MS Updates

As well as 'Show desktop icons' tick 'Align to grid'

Right-click on desktop>properties>desktop>customize desktop....under General tab ticks in My Documents and My Computer and/or click on Restore default. Don't forget to click on Apply .........
