Hi abdcom and welcome to SevenForums,
How long has the issue been happening ?
Which Security do you have installed and what does Hotspot shield belong to ?
Are you using a wifi network or wired ?
The issue seems so odd it's most likely a third party utility problem, post any new ones or any you have installed/ ccleaner....
Most of this might be fixed via your last issue,
Use the download all zip listed in the Note,
Default File Type Associations - Restore
Right click the Favorites listing and click on Restore favorites links,
Favorites - Restore Default Favorite Links in Navigation Pane
Right click the Start button and click on Properties,
Make sure both Privacy boxes are checked,

Thank you very much ThrashZone
All of these problems were because i have Favorites Empty in Navigation Pane
I read about this topic here Favorites Empty in Navigation Pane - Fix
i delete the "IsShorcut" string value from the registry and when i return this value, all of this problems are solved
but i have one question
i delete that value because i do not like the arrows in the corner of the icons,
how can remove these arrows without the occurrence of these problems?

Are you talking about these arrows ? Or are you talking about desktop icons ?

Glad the issue was resolved with Brink's tutorial,
I have no idea how to remove the arrows, AddRam or whs might ?
Favorites is a folder with other folders inside or links to other areas of your personal files which should also have a Public listing as well,
This is the default Favorites listings that I have,

I use Vista Visual Master to remove icon arrows, I only keep game icons on my desktop anyway, I hate the clutter of icons.

There are quite a few free programs to remove them, here is Brink`s tutorial on how to do it.

Shortcut Arrow - Change, Remove, or Restore
