Hey there, ok I bought this laptop in september. I did not have the internet on it, so this is not a virus... the internet came installed with vista, and I got the coupon for free windows 7 upgrade
PROBLEM -- every time I turn the laptop on, the icons disappear.. I right click on the desktop and 'show desktop icons' IS ticked.. so I untick it, and retick it, then the icons appear again.
after a few hours they disappear again... also I can customise the desktop to have a picture or even a plain background like bright yellow.. but it will reset the background when it removes the icons
I thought this was a stupid windows vista issue so installed the Windows 7 upgrade. and the problem has continued
hours and days of googling have not helped me at all.
so I don't know if its to do with a registry issue or perhaps one of those stupid power saving laptop capabilities.
does anyone have any ideas?
