Wow thats kinda odd...

Is it at the exact second that the icons appear or about a few seconds later?

If its at the exact time im thinking a corrupted icons .dll file. If its a few seconds it may be a boot up .dll but I don't know.

Try starting in safe mode, run a virus scan or check windows for updates, It may overwrite the corrupted system file.

Good luck, hope this helps.
If I am helping you and I do not respond within 24 hours, please send me a PM. :)

Does the blue screen have typing on it? If so, what does the typing say (here's a link to some descriptions on obtaining blue screen info: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/top...tml#entry409491 )?

What is the exact make and model of your system - and do you have the repair/restore disks for the system?
