Hi

Does any one here know why my desktop icon sometimes disappears but not the name. I running in 98Se, not very long ago a guy on this post told me that it could be a hidden window file called 'ShellIconCache' that could be corrupted, so to fix it I will probably need to rename the file to this 'ShellIconCache.bak'. I did it and I throught it workd but it didn't, Window just made an other copy of the file but with no '.bak'. And now sometimes(2X a day or more) my desktop icons just disappears for no reason.

So can any one tell me what could be the problem or any suggestions. Thanks alot.
