Yup.....you bet!

These so called 'Watermark' removers reek havoc on the Win7 system, best avoided, besides I love my 'build text' showing, and think it should become mandatory from now on..........like........

Windows 7
PAID Copy. Build 7200

The desktop Icons do disappear. It's happened to me.

To get them back:

right click on desktop > View > click show desktop icons.

DITTO. Icons on desktop, taskbar, Start menu, notification area, and even the Back and Forward buttons in IE8 disappear when I pass them mouse over them. No hacks here, either.

Windows 7 Build 7100, Toshiba Tecra M5.

same problem

I'm having the same problem as well... icons on taskbar (pinned, running, tray) randomly disappear, as do desktop icons and some icons in applications. I'm running rc build 7100. I didn't upgrade from the beta, instead did a clean install (though didn't format the drive).
