Hello bro thanks for reply,i checked your link.Mean time i tried to find out what's the problem is,i saw there are two desktops in my computer at the moment,i think thhis is created when i moved the user folder to E drive,i moved back the user folder back to c drive already.
I have attached a screenshot here,pls have a look and let me know how to get rid of the additional desktop.
Strangely when i click the desktop under the computer user name windows explorer crashes.I checked the user accounts to find is there any other account is created,seams to be usual.
