Windows 7: Desktop folder deletes after restart w7 premium 64bit

Desktop folder deletes after restart w7 premium 64bit

Hi All,

I recently installed windows 7 premium 64bit on my custom computer.

Here are my specs:
GPU - GeForce GTX 970
CPU - i7 5930 @ 3.50ghz
Memory - 16gb DDR

Every time I restart my computer, c:\users\(myusername)\Desktop folder deletes.
I don't see any errors in any logs files. In order to fix it, I just add the Desktop folder.
It gets pretty annoying though.

Any suggestions?

Go to Control Panel > Under System and Security, Find and Fix Problems > on the left click change settings and turn Computer Maintenance to OFF.
For some reason the computer maintenance routine will "clean up" (delete) desktop shortcuts thinking that they are "broken" .
