Hi, I recently switched off my system restore after reading a tweak where it is advised, to save memory. After few days, My Networkplaces Icon disappeared from desktop. I checked with desktop properties, customize desktop and there My network places is checked along with My computer, Explorer and Recycle bin. But it is not being displayed, I tired every means and to no use. I regretted switching restore off and turned it on. After two days Explorer from taskbar disappeared. I could recover it with System restore. Why this vanishing act of Windows XP and how to get my "My Networkplaces" back? Help me to prevent further disappearing act. Sorry for such long query.
