How much do you have stored on the desktop?

If you have whole files and folders containing other files and even web URL's stored on the actual desktop, what you're seeing is just Explorer refreshing/caching the contents of the desktop. But, if you only have shortcut icons (the ones with an arrow) pointing to places and files, that's a different matter.
