Everytime I uncheck Show Desktop Icons, it will stay unchecked up until I restart my PC or install new software, then they will reappear. I don't like seeing them and I want to be able to store things on the desktop but just not see them. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium X64. Its an OEM Asus version that came on my new laptop. If anyone knows how to make them stay permanently hidden, I would greatly appreciate it.
