Windows 7: Windows 7 desktop icons only show file size

Windows 7 desktop icons only show file size

I work at a highschool and one of the windows 7 system's icons only show the file size and nothing else, I have checked the box to show the file sizes as tips in folder view and it makes the icon names come back until the next reboot.

I have checked to see if the box was still checked and it was but the file names were gone again.

I have tryed deleating the iconcache and resetting the folder view back to the defaults, all are only temporarly effective.

does anyone have any suggestions?
