shortcuts disappear from desktop

This has happened a few time recently, all my shortcuts just diasppear, and i have to restart to get back to normal, i can go to any programs from the start menu etc, but the whole desk top just goes blank.

Is there anyway besides rebooting or any reasons for this happening.

Any help appreciated

Are you using an OS with System Restore?

If so, try restoring to a time before the problem started occurring.

well i have xp and yes have system restore.

But its not like its happening every day or so, it might go a few weeks then do it again etc, so just seems strange.

Thanks for the reply
