Many thanks amstadaM! Your solution worked like a charm. What happened is when the computer shut down with the BSOD, it switched from showing "desktop ions" to "desktop gadgets." This type of switching during BSOD shutdowns has been a problem with this computer but it has never before affected my desktop. Most commonly, it has changed the drive to boot from. Thanks again.
