View Full Version : Double icons on desktop



11-07-2001, 10:50 PM
I run WIN98SE and recently re-installed OS.
I now find that every time I place an item on the desktop, a 2nd icon is created. I cannot delete just one - both then disappear.

Anyone advise what is up please and what to do to fix?

TIA

Do you have user profiles enabled on your machine ? I cannot think of any reason that Windows would be doing this unless you have a replication of your desktop folder enabled.
If you add the icon to \windows\desktop folder - does this happen ?
