Hi, Can anyone tell me how to fix my friend's laptop, which seems to lose the desktop icons? She uses Windows 7 Home Premium [is there any other Home version --- I think not!] Many thanks

Is 'show desktop icons' box ticked when right clicking desktop and selecting 'view'? Otherwise try rebuilding the icon cache, Majorgeeks . Heed the warning **Do note that ending Icon Cache Rebuilder before it finishes can result in Windows giving you an error for your user profile **
