:thumbsup: A few days ago, I started up my computer, and I had no desktop icons. My wallpaper is there, but no icons. I started pushing keys on the key board, shook my mouse and all the other duhhhhhhh things I could think of. After a minute or so, they showed up. This is now happening everytime I start up my computer. I tried to do a restore (this started after I downloaded the Kodak easy share software that came with my new camera) but it would not allow me to do so. I do not see how that program could make my icons disappear, but who knows. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi Zookey.

Right Click on a blank portion of your desktop, go to ARRANGE ICONS BY> and see that the Show Desktop Icons is ticked.

I've seen other instances, where Kodak's software has caused problems.
So much so, that I suggested my daughter NOT install it, on her computer.
Here's a sampling:

Thanks for that tg.

I was feeling a bit guilty for blaming Kodak EasyShare for my problems but now don't feel so bad.
It was implicated in a total meltdown of my previous computer and I now have corrupt system files on this new one. Continual explorer crashes and booting up with no Start button or Taskbar - extremely frustrating.

You're welcome, rowal5555.
I would suggest that anyone with this software, uninstall it.
I stumbled across all of these problems, when I was researching a Kodak camera for my granddaughter, for Christmas.
To make sure it didn't "accidentally" get installed on their computer, I kept the disk. :thumbsup:
