Windows 7: No icons when I open My Computer

Windows 7 Ultimate x32
No icons when I open My Computer

My laptop is an eMachines E725 with a 3GB DDR3 RAM. I installed the Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit version on it. When I open 'My Computer', I can't see any icons sometimes. I can't even see the thumbnails of picture files. In order to correct that, I have to go to Control Panel everytime, close it, and then open 'My Computer'. How can I get rid of this problem?

I wish I could explain it in better detail but my computer lingo isn't that great. PLEASE HELP ME!

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, clean install, upgrade disc

Maybe this will help
Icon Cache - Rebuild

YOu may, then, want to try an SFC command. Since the above is a long shot.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
