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

Type command prompt in Start menu search box and then hit Ctrl + Shift + Enter to launch the Command Prompt with administrator rights. Alternatively, go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, right-click on Command Prompt and then select Run as administrator option.
Click Yes if you are prompted with UAC (User Account Control) box.
Once the Command Prompt opened, type sfc /scannow and hit enter. This command scans integrity of protected system files and then repairs if problems found.
The process may take a few minutes. Once done you are good to close the Command Prompt.
You can also type just sfc in the Command Prompt to know more about sfc commands.
