win 7 64

I did exactly what damonrd said to do. It WILL NOT work. I ran malwarebytes, superantispyware and ccleaner and it still will not work. I am seriously pissed off, because this happened out of the blue and I just put this damn thing together in July. I REALLY need some help, it is way to damn soon to reformat. Thanks.

Is your Desktop folder present under your User account name?

If not type Desktop in Start Search box, rightclick to Open File Location. Where is it located presently?

To restore it to its correct location or if it can't be found follow User Folders - Restore Default Location

Save to Desktop problems
With auto arrange and align to grid checked, the save order of files to desktop is random. Instead of saving the file after the last icon on the desktop, the order saved seems to depend on whatever you have the view options set to. This was never an issue with Win XP. Anyone experiencing this...
