What happens when you right click on the desktop and choose 'personalize'... click on "change desktop icons", then click 'restore default'?

Just a thought, try to open another account. Maybe the one you have is defective.

Already tried, no effect. The desktop itself should be okay, but something with graphics must be wrong.... :-(

Tried several times, it's still the same no matter whether the other account is a standard or administrator one.
