    Thanks - it was quite accidental, cause I wanted to see if I could find a shortcut key for hiding desktop icons - I just happened to be staring right at the corner when I enabled it and saw the version disappear and I was like "Whoa!"

    Awesome, I had no idea they were just hidden. I have lost my desktop a few time, always after just rebooting. I think it is a bug in Win 7. Anyway, I just assumed my local profile was corrupt and went through the painful task of rebuilding it. Da.

    I tryed your suggestion and Wellla, my desktop is back to normal.

    It worked for me. I thought my local profile was corrupt. Don't ask how many times I have rebuilt my profile. I have lost them before, simply by logging off or rebooting. I think it is a bug in Win 7, no sure what caused them to become hidden.

    Thanks Johngalt,
