    well after a reinstall due to the occurance of a blue screen everytime i booted, tried lots to get rid of the blue screen - last know config etc...

    anyhow i aint got any icons on my desktop but the recycle bin.

    how'd i get the proper MyComputer and Network neighbourhood icons back, not just the shortcuts to tthem.

    :confused:

    Right click on your desktop>>>properties. There another tab to choose once that (can't remember it and I'm at work, just look around) choose to show those icons on your desktop.

    I know:

    At your desktop press your right mouse key and go to properties.
    Go to the second sheet called desktop. Then go to change desktop. There you have your icons back.

    i only have 1 icon on my desktop - the recycle bin.

    i dislike desktop icons - they clutter everything up!

    i have all my icons in the taskbar next to my start button.

    if you want to try it this way, find the proggy in all programs list, click once (hold down) and drag to the taskbar.

    makes for a nice clean desktop so you can actually see your wallpaper! :)
