    I don't know if this is unique to Win XP but that's where it happens to me. Every so often, usually after running an installer for some piece of software, I get the following looking screen in Windows Explorer:

    They seem to be "icons" from the desktop and the only way I've found to clear it is to close and reopen Win Explorer. I can't seem to find the right search words to feed Google, even at the MS web site. Anyone else ever seen this one?

    Do you display the Desktop toolbar in the Windows taskbar? There are some reports that this causes the problem; there doesn't seem to be a satisfactory solution apart from hiding the Desktop toolbar.

    Yes I do. Aha, so that might be it, huh? Well, I guess I'll live with it then because I'm really dependent on the Desktop toolbar. I use it almost exclusively and hardly ever have to go to the Start button. I'd guess that 90% of what I do is on there.

    Thanks Hans!

    Thanks for posting this. I only see this error very occassionally, but it's nice to have an explanation.
