Xp wont show desktop.

  shortcircuit 17:55 13 Aug 03

Hi all. My brother has rung me with a problem with his pc. I'm going up to his house this weekend to have a look. He had a BSOD for no reason. He rebooted. He got the log on screen, and then logged on, but when it loads, he only gets the Desktop theme. NO ICONS! What could cause this? I intend to use his Xp disk and reinstall but save settings. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks all

I know someone must have a clue!

Has he just hidden them? Right click the desktop and select 'arrange icons by' and then tick 'show desktop icons'

Might off. I'll try that for a starter.
