Can't see only some of the icons on my desktop on windows 7
I have recently preinstalled my Windows, it's Windows 7 X64. When I download something it goes to my desktop. But when I tried to download some word files and looked for them at the desktop they weren't there. I clicked to download them again and I saw it's really downloading them on the desktop, not another folder and it wanted to save them as xxxxx(1).doc, which meant they were already there. I looked again, I couldn't see them. Then after a minute maybe all the icons suddenly appeared on the desktop. I found that very strange.
Then another time I was downloading a zip file. It appeared on my desktop, but then when I tried to unzip it on my desktop again I couldn't see the unzipped file and this time it didn't appear. When I open libraries or some program and try to open a file on my desktop I can see them all, they're there. But I can't see them on my actual desktop.
Do you have any idea what the problem might be and how to solve it?

Try creating a Download folder in the root directory (C:\)and setting your browser to send files to it. This is what I do with every machine I set up. I never use the "Downloads" folder. This will keep all files downloaded off of the Desktop and in a central location.
Once you have moved all downloaded files to the folder-refresh the desktop icons. I would also suggest that you run Ccleaner to insure that all is otherwise OK. (Some argue that this program is not needed-I use it all the time.)
