when switching off internet desktop shortcuts don't work

Hi. I have a problem in that when I turn internet off or minimise internet explorer my desktop shortcuts no longer work. I then have to restart computer to get them working again.My other icons work i.e task bars top and bottom. The problem has only just started in the last 4-5 days and I don't think I have downloaded any programmes.
I am running Windows 7 home premium. Hope someone can help, I am going away for a few days tomorrow so apologies if someone wants a response from me but I am hoping it will give you kind people time to respond while I am away. Thanks
