Hello all, I am having issues with my Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit SP1 computer. From time to time, usually after a period of inactivity, the desktop icons, taskbar and gadgets disappear from the desktop leaving only the screensaver. At that point I can right click the desktop and check to see if the "show desktop icons" box is checked (it is). Once I am left with a blank desktop the only way out is to crash the computer, ctrl/alt/delete does not work. I have just recently replaced my monitor with a wide screen monitor and the problem occurred soon after. Thanks for listening.
