Windows Deleting desktop icons...

Thank you Lance1. I'll try your suggestion first. I've always loved Windows Polish Logic!
I'll always remember upgrading my IBM XT from 64k to 640k and removing the second Floppy
drive to install a full height 10meg HD (cost almost $2000.00). I told my wife that this would
last us the rest of our lives. Two weeks later they came out with the AT's. We live and learn!
