    I am running my Gateway on Vista and the other day I had a crash and was
    able to recover from it but now my desktop screen is missing all the
    icons that were on it. I have tried to drag icons to the desktop from
    the tool bar where I found them. but so far no luck. Anyone have any
    tips. No computer icon, no recycling icon and so on. But the desktop
    is on the bottom tool bar. I have no idea of how to correct this
    anything wold be appreciated. thanks in advance if anyone has a clue.

    In Lee typed:
    If you have no icons on the desktop, you might have the view turned off.
    Right click on the desktop and the context menu pops up. And select view
    and make sure Show Desktop Icons is checked.

    Hi BillW50, when I right click on the desktop nothing happens at all. I do
    have the tool bar but much prefer having the icons. For some reason I
    always get something no one else gets! (grin)

    Wow that is weird. Do you have a background (aka wallpaper)?

    I have looked and looked but nothing seems to work. It is weird Can't
    right click on
    Desktop nothing happens, no icons at all. they all ended up in the
    toolbar. No I did not move them either. Can't even drag and drop to
    Desktop. Yes I did insert a background (wallpaper) a picture of my
    wife. No problem with that though.

    Well how about creating another user logon and see if that one works. If
    that works, it means that user account is corrupt.
