Gee, I was all set to answer the Defender question and I had to go to the next page and I was hit with this. If MSE is making it worse, put back your old A/V. Defender would be shut off with MSE, as it is no longer needed. Its function is taken over by MSE.

Thanks again! You are the best!

I booted up today, and it seemed that the icons did not disappeared at all, But I booted in over 3 mins! Not good... I pride myself in taking good care of my systems, cleanning, defragging, etc... I will review those 2 links see if I can learn something new...
Perhaps preventing programs from starting up with windows will do the trick?

I thought that there was some sort of conflict. If you can pin it down to which program is causing the conflict we can rememdy it.

Desktop Icons sometimes don't disappear after I delete
This happens quite often; sometimes when I delete icons from the desktop, they don't disappear from the desktop. If I try to click one, however, it gives me a message that it cannot be found. I have to go to the task manager and close explorer and re open it. Any registry fixes?
